Pepe and The Flying Balloon Performance
As we end the year of 2014, we reflected on the many events we proudly are able to share with you. On December 12, 2014, Melissa Sunjaya’s beloved story “Pepe and the Flying Baloon,” was transformed into a magical performance performed by the KDM (Kampus Diakonia Modern) children, a non-profit organisation dedicated to rescuing abandoned children from the streets of Jakarta. Choreographed by Lauri Kee Schep & Anne Rooze, the performance brought forth a different light to the Pepe and The Flying Balloon story as we could feel the actual despair of the children as performed by the main actor as she struggles against the harshness of the street and falls into the embrace of those who took care of her.
Thank you for the lovely KDM children who gave their soul to this story, thanking also Eramus Huis for their support, Lauri Keep Schep & Anne Rooze for giving life to every moment and Vanessa Henoque for the costume designs.
