Borobudur International Writer and Art Festival 2016

I have joined in a dancing community in Yogyakarta called Paradance. Last year, there was a festival called Borobudur International Writer and Art Festival. It is located in a hill called Andong near Borobudur Temple.


The theme of the art is about Centini Gunung. Centini is a book about Javanese encyclopedia. So, it’s complete with all the ceremonies, Javanese kamasutra and all the Javanese life in the encyclopedia. Unfortunately, there is no full translation in English. Even it hasn’t finished in Bahasa translation as it is in Javanese Manuscripts. In the festival, all the dancers and artists performed their interpretation about Centini.



Some of the photos in this post are not only from me but also from my friend who took the picture of performance. Btw, I found my dancing teacher in the festival. Then at the first time, there must be a parade. So, all the dancers and performers would be in the parade and walked along the road.



Manager in our dancing group asked me to help my friends for costume and makeup. They performed about with white costumes. I was enjoying this festival as I saw many interesting performance.

It was a good chance to know more about festival in Indonesia. I thank manager for taking me to join them in the festival. It was fun and very good to involve myself in the festival.
