Scottish poetry collective Neu! Reekie! are performing their curated work for the first time in Indonesia. Following their debut at the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali and performance in Medan, they are heading to Jakarta. For the first two days, they will be collaborating with local writers in Jakarta and spend time in Pasar Santa for a mini-residency before performing on Saturday for a one-of-a-kind cabaret show.  

Dubbed as Scotland’s favourite avant-garde noisemakers, their performance combines storytelling, film, and music. 

Free admission.
