We were honored to have a crew from TVOne – Jakarta, Indonesia come to our rehearsal on March 16 and film us performing Angels & Demons at Play, Catur Rawita and Kebyar Ding. They then interviewed ensemble director Patrick Alonzo Conway and ensemble member Berend Niehorster-Cook.
Reporter Dindi Tartika and cameraman Agung were accompanied by Lauren Jackman representing the State Department. The crew is in the US working on a feature piece on corruption and have visited Washington DC, Kansas City and were preparing to move on to Chicago. An additional feature on the influence of Indonesian culture in the US is also on their to-do list, thus their work with Gamelan Genta Kasturi. Also in attendance was Marti Wilson with the Indonesian Association of Greater Kansas City and her son Bayu.
We all had a great time and really appreciated them visiting us and documenting what we are doing thanks to Charlotte Street Foundation and the Urban Culture Project Studio Residency Program.
