Presented by Performance Space
Extraordinary Indonesian dancer Rianto (Softmachine, Liveworks 2016) returns to Performance Space with his first full-length solo performance.Medium is a powerful contemporary take on Lengger: the traditional, cross-gender Javanese dance developed over hundreds of years and taught to Rianto by masters of the form. Combining movement with live vocals and music, Medium is Rianto’s universal call for freedom, opening the space between manhood and womanhood; customs and religious principles; conscious control and trance.
