Roseanna Anderson and Joshua Ben-Tovim of Impermanence Dance Theatre Company (UK) will collaborate with Heru Joni Putra and Irfan Setiawan (ID) on an online art residency, examining the concept of "ARRIVAL/TIBA".
For the project, they will explore three sources, such as Syair "Peri Tuan Raffles Pergi ke Minangkabau", the biographical perspectives of the 4 artists and their relationship to 'Tiba/Arrival', as well as geological links between Indonesia/UK and the impact on labour and industry, including similarities in mining and resource extraction.
