IETM performing arts meeting Indonesia

IETM is pleased to announce a Satellite Meeting, from 14 to 21 June 2010 in Jakarta in collaboration with the 10th edition of Indonesian Dance Festival (IDF) and with the support of the Asia Europe Foundation (ASEF).The theme will be: 'Creative Producers Initiative Network (Asia-Europe)'. This visit in Indonesia will be the culmination of a series of meetings that IETM has held annually in Asia since 2005 (in Singapore, Beijing-Shanghai, Seoul, Gwangju, Tokyo). So far, the feedback from Asian cultural operators at previous meetings is that there is a clear need to streamline the focus and create an alliance between Asia-Europe and Asia-Asia – one that encourages 'creative producing' for independent dance/theatre stakeholders. The independent structure, functioning with limited information and resources, should be encouraged to share and enlarge their resources with partners sensitive to specificities of artistic contexts and cultural differences. A collaboration between IETM and IDF, the meeting will include a number of working sessions and seminars highlighting case studies presenting Asians and Europeans with current challenges and relevant issues. It will compare 'best practices', and where possible, follow-up threads of cooperation identified in earlier IETM meetings in Asia. Responding to Jakarta as a dynamic site of artistic production, participants will visit artists’ rehearsal studios, observe works in progress and discuss artists’ intentions, evolutions, challenges and inspirations. Focusing this way on the dramaturgy of the works, IETM will balance its usual concerns of arts management and policy with artistic-cultural analysis, reflection and exchange. Programme:
  • Working sessions and visits of artists’ spaces in Jakarta – Monday 14 - Thursday 17 June
  • Caravan visit in Solo and Yogyakarta – Friday 18 - Monday 21 June
