Event Review; BRIGHTSPOT

The 8th Brightspot Market Tenant

1360141609

Brightspot Market was founded in early 2009 with the goal of showcasing young, independent fashio,n and product designers along side unique retailers and international streetwear brands. After only a few Brightspot Markets, Indonesian brands have taken center stage in Jakarta and beyond. Simultaneously, the international products featured in Brightspot Market have gained cool cult status in the local market. Attendance has gone from just over 5000 visitors at our first event to 55,000 at our last event in November 2011.

“THE FUTURE IS STILL UNWRITTEN”

In the last two years, Brightspot has gone from being a market of all things cool to a full-blown cultural phenomenon. People in the know have come to trust Brightspot as the front-runner for new fashion and style in Indonesia. In December 2010, the Brightspot team opened THE GOODS DEPT• a temporary 1066 square meter curated department store and café in Plaza Indonesia.

As you might already know, the four days temporary concept market Brightspot Market is making a comeback this year on Valentine’s Day and will take place at the Grand Indonesia West Mall, Jakarta. As usual, the cool event will have several things for you to get, of course from the respected local brand names such as Cotton Ink, Pot Meets Pop, Elhaus, AMBLE, ZEVIN, PARD, Geulis, and many more. So make sure to come and bring your friends with you on the February 14th to 17th 2013!

Event Review; Teater EPIK vol. 5 : TARAKSA

Behind The Scene

Sebuah ‘pengorbanan yang bermula dari kasih sayang’. Premis utama tersebut coba diterjemahkan ke dalam bentuk ‘perjalanan langit’ yang dilalui Taraksa untuk menjemput kembali Chiandra, wanita yang dicintainya. Dengan menghadirkan ruang pentas yang minim dialog, penuturan cerita melalui gerak tubuh, suara musik, juga gerik artistik, beberapa logika panggung kami coba dobrak pada pertunjukan Taraksa ini. Adalah kehadiran para pemain musik, lengkap dengan peralatannya, yang ditampilkan secara berani sebagai bagian dari artistik panggung yang responsif. Medium panggung pun coba diperluas tidak hanya terbatas pada aturan porsenium, posisi duduk penonton ditata sedemikian rupa sehingga memberikan ceruk lebih bagi keseluruhan komposisi artistik, yang bertujuan demi membangun wahana bagi para penonton untuk turut ikut menjadi bagian dari aksi pertunjukan.

“Ini merupakan sesuatu yang beda. Bahkan untuk teater pun, ini teater yang beda.” -Marikar Arsy (Produser)

Selain itu, berbekal dari satu naskah utama, tim produksi pun merambah eksplorasi artistik di luar panggung. Kehadiran cerita bersambung sebagai program mediasi acara, penerbitan concept art book, dan penawaran merchandise Taraksa di hari-H menjadikan pengemasan acara yang utuh secara holistik.

“Semuanya berangkat dari sebuah premi sederhana.. Sangat Sederhana.” -Sutansyah Marahakim (Sutradara)

Menginjak pementasan yang kelima ini, Teater EPIK perlahan mulai mencapai tujuan dari berdirinya ; memberikan suatu wadah untuk bertemu teman-teman baru yang memiliki itikad bersama membangun seni pertunjukan di Bandung . Keterlibatan para mahasiswa lintas universitas dari ITB, UNPAR, ITENAS, UNISBA, UNPAD, UPI, IT Telkom, juga para siswa lintas sekolah dari SMAN 1, SMAN 15, dan SMAN 19, benar adanya membuat Taraksa sebagai ajang kolaborasi para penggiat seni pertunjukan di kalangan siswa dan mahasiswa di Bandung. Pada tanggal 26 – 27 Februari nanti, Dago Tea House, Bandung akan disemarakkan satu kali lagi, sebagaimana nama yang menyematnya, sebuah Taman Budaya.

Poster-Taraksa

“Kami mencoba menyampaikan dialog tersebut melalui musik.” -Fiola Rondonuwu (Pengarah Musik)

“Metafor yang dinikmati, bukan yang dimengerti” -Misha Azizia (Pengarah Artistik)

“Ketika naskah tidak hanya dimainkan diatas panggung, tapi dijadikan awal untuk modal produksi” -Tri Adi Pasha (Produser Eksekutif)
