CushCush Gallery is organizing and presenting a series of 3 CHARCOAL FOR CHILDREN (CFC) 2017/18 workshops. This time their theme is PLAY PLAY, and they will PLAY! and have a lot of fun! "We do realize that playing is one of the biggest part in our childhood that helps us discover more about our personal interest, hobby and also our dream! that’s why this year we will PLAY a lot during CFC workshops!" said one of the team member.
Together with the invited artists/ performing groups, this year CFC will explore and discover more about our local heritage in puppets, mask, shadow puppets, combine with music, dance and theatrical performance, by using LagiLagi DIY charcoal and up-cycling material to create properties for CFC 2017/18 charity performance in February 2018.
For 1st session, CFC had one of Indonesia’s renown performing group: Papermoon Puppet Theatre from Yogyakarta! known for their wonderful performances such as ‘Secangkir Kopi dari Playa!’, ‘Mwathirika’, and many more! CushCush Gallery working together with LagiLagi were very delighted to have Papermoon Puppet Theatre for a residency program in Bali, to collaborate and PLAY with children and our local creative communities.
For the 2nd session, LagiLagi collaborate with Kawamura Koheysai, a multitalented Japanese contemporary artist/ shadow puppeteer who travels around Indonesia such as Jakarta, Kalimantan, Yogyakarta, and finally now in Bali, to study and make a research about Wayang (shadow puppet). As a solo player, Kohe-san always combine unique stories & music throughout his performance, this will be a really distinctive collaboration with the children!
And finally, on the 3rd session, they will have Monez & Ninus! Monez is a Balinese artist known for his ‘Fablelous’ style, a combination of words & fable, inspired by boundless imagination also animal/monster spirit character. And Ninus, who is an architect graduate from Bandung, who is now living in Bali as a contemporary dancer, inspired by space and movement. This will be a very interesting collaboration since both of them have a different background and approach. We are looking forward to their magic!
