Overview

Terinspirasi dari "Syair Lampung Karam", Karya Muhammad Saleh, 1883

Mengulang kesuksesan I LA GALIGO, Ciputra Artpreneur bersama Bumi Purnati Indonesia menghadirkan UNDER THE VOLCANO untuk pertama kalinya di Jakarta.

Pagelaran teater karya sutradara Yusril Katil ini pertama kali dipentaskan dalam Olimpiade Teater ke-6 di Dayin Theatre, Beijing, Tiongkok pada 7 dan 8 November 2014. Lalu pada 21-23 April 2016, di Theatre Works, Singapura.

Pada 24 November 2018, "Under The Volcano" juga mendapatkan kesempatan untuk hadir dalam perhelatan budaya Borobudur Writers & Cultural Festival (BWCF) 2018 di Panggung Akshobya Candi Borobudur, Magelang, Yogyakarta.

Terinspirasi dari "Syair Lampung Karam" karya Muhammad Saleh, "Under The Volcano" mengangkat tema bencana alam yang disebabkan letusan gunung Krakatau, disertai gempa dan tsunami pada 1883.

Pementasan ini dibagi menjadi enam bagian dan dilakonkan dengan narasi berbahasa Indonesia yang diperkuat dengan elemen tarian, musik, dan efek visual yang menakjubkan. Musik dan tarian didasarkan pada bentuk-bentuk tradisional Melayu yang digubah untuk mencerminkan berlalunya waktu, berdampingan dengan musik dan tarian kontemporer.

Pesan dari "Under the Volcano" adalah "jika hari ini adalah tahun 1883, untuk bertahan hidup di dunia ini seseorang harus bergantung pada bantuan orang lain".

[...] So, seeing that there is a professional company which is doing this show in Singapore, proudly presenting in the Indonesian language, it is very enlightening, very refreshing, and very inspiring. They're really packaging the whole thing, the culture in a contemporary setting, it's just really amazing [...] - Anya Adhyanta, an NUS student from Indonesia

[...] I've never seen physical work that risky, that captivating on stage before, and I've never seen something that combines a sense of traditional side with contemporary movements so effectively and seamlessly. So I think that it's a beautiful show to come and see because it tells a story that we can all relate to in our present day. It shows us some traditional culture as well as interpretation of modern elements, and it's from an amazing island, Sumatra in Indonesia, that not many people get a chance to really know about or learn about and to see this kind of contemporary work coming from a place like that - we often think of Jakarta as being where the big works from Indonesia should come - but to see something coming from a place like Sumatra, and to see it so real and so moving, I think it's something everybody should take advantage of [...] - Jacyntha England, Drama Theatre
