‘Exuding sensuality from every pore – her strong technique a mere vehicle for her expressive power’ Dance Australia Magazine

‘Ria Soemardjo sings. Her whole body becomes voice. There is a kind of simplicity to her physicality that makes space for the sound to emerge as pure affect‘ Real Time

Against a shimmering terrain of shadow and sand a modern ritual is danced and sung of mountains, bones and ghostly rivers.

Opal Vapour is a powerful music, light and dance performance exploring the Javanese mystical traditions of shadow puppet theatre, gamelan and trance possession ceremonies.

Ria Soemardjo’s mesmerising live music score and Paula van Beek’s sublime lighting landscapes provide the perfect backdrop for Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggal’s sinuous exploration of belonging to a birthplace.

Drawing on influences from ballet, Javanese, Balinese and African dance, to Japanese martial arts, Opal Vapour is an exquisitely executed dialogue between the real and imagined physical spaces inhabited by spiritually fluid beings.
