L’ Histoire du soldat | Friday – Saturday, 11 – 12 July, 2014
Histoire du soldat (The Soldier’s Tale), comes from a Russian folktale The Runaway Soldier and The Devil, written in 1918 by C. F. Ramuz and Igor Stravinsky, set to the background of World War I and a devastating economic condition.
Choreographer Gerard Mosterd will present a Javanese version of the tale in this performance. Unlike its previous presentation at the 2012 Indonesian Dance Festival, Goenawan Mohamad has adapted the original to strengthen narrative spirit of this play. For the current performance, the narrator uses a wayang and a bottle as puppets, to enliven the dialog between Yusuf and the Devil. It is also told that the Devil cannot die and has the same worries as humankind.
