Antar Ragam is Teater Garasi/Garasi Performance Institute’s new initiative that strives to establish contact and meetings with tradition, culture and artists and youth in cities outside of Java, in a process of unlearning and relearning their Indonesian and Asian identities.

Based on the process of collective creation, an approach of creating performance art that Teater Garasi has developed over the years, Teater Garasi artists will invite artists and youth in several selected cities outside the island of Java to identify and empower social and cultural initiatives through reading, discussing and presenting their concerns regarding issues of changes and diversity in their social-cultural environments. Hopefully with this structure, the process of knowledge-exchange and learning together will endure.

It is hoped that the performance piece and project that is created in and by contact across styles can give rise to new understanding and an alternative narrative of the realities of change and social-cultural diversity in Indonesia and Asia.
