Teater Garasi/Garasi Performance Institute

Teater Garasi is a multi-disciplinary performance collective, based in Yogyakarta-Indonesia, that explores and devises many possibilities in performing arts creation as part of an attempt to read, unveil, and understand changes happening in our ever transforming-world.

Teater Garasi is a 2013 Prince Claus Laureate, awarded, among other things, “for their adventurous spirit and groundbreaking work in stimulating performance arts in South East Asia.”

Established in 1993, Teater Garasi was built on the belief, and the practices, of performing arts as a way to process and produce knowledge and to dialectically involve with the social political environment. Such vision and practice, since the 2000s, have brought Teater Garasi’s works and artists into international performing arts circuit (Singapore, Berlin, Tokyo, Shizuoka, Osaka, New York, Amsterdam).

Garasi Performance Institute is an initiative of the collective (Teater Garasi), which aims to create and encourage a sustainable creative environment for performing artists in Indonesia and Asia by means of knowledge sharing and dissemination, performance production and laboratory, archiving and publishing, and artist-in-residence programs. As an initiative, Garasi Performance Institute is an attempt to expand and institutionalize Teater Garasi’s years of experiences on knowledge production and collective creation.

The Knowledge Sharing and Dissemination Program consists of trainings, workshops, publication, and public discussions, aimed at contributing to Indonesia’s performing arts knowledge infrastructure. Performing Arts Production and Laboratory Program facilitates performing arts research and creation of Teater Garasi’s resident artists as well as other young artists. The Internship and Artis-in-Residence Program, is an open space managed by Teater Garasi Foundation for young artists to have a firsthand experience with Teater Garasi’s works, or to have a residency time to immerse themselves in Yogyakarta’s society and art communities.

Institutionally Teater Garasi’s management has cooperated and been supported by Open Society Foundations (2001-2002), Cultural Program of the Royal Netherlands Embassy (2007-2008), Hivos (2002-2015) and Ford Foundation (2017 -…).

Teater Garasi adalah sebuah kolektif seniman lintas disiplin yang menjelajahi dan menciptakan berbagai kemungkinan seni pertunjukan sebagai bagian dari upaya memahami dan mementaskan perubahan-perubahan yang terjadi di masyarakat.

Sejak tahun 1993, Teater Garasi berdiri di atas kepercayaan dan praktik yang melihat seni pertunjukan sebagai suatu cara untuk mengolah dan memproduksi pengetahuan serta untuk melibatkan diri secara dialektis dengan lingkungan sosial politik. Visi dan praktik itu telah membawa seniman dan karya Teater Garasi ke pergaulan dan fora seni pertunjukan internasional.

Teater Garasi adalah salah satu penerima anugerah Prince Claus tahun 2013 dari Yayasan Keluarga Kerajaan Belanda (Prince Claus Fund), dengan pertimbangan, antara lain: “untuk semangat penjelajahan dan karya-karya inovatif yang merangsang seni pertunjukan di Asia Tenggara; … untuk menekankan serta merayakan sifat heterogen masyarakat Indonesia yang kompleks.

Yayasan Teater Garasi

Diresmikan pada tahun 2001, Yayasan Teater Garasi adalah suatu inisiatif para pendiri dan seniman-seniman Teater Garasi yang bertujuan untuk mendorong lingkungan kreatif yang berkelanjutan bagi seni pertunjukan di Indonesia dan Asia. Tujuan itu diwujudkan melalui program-program penyebaran dan pertukaran pengetahuan (knowledge sharing and dissemination), produksi dan laboratorium pertunjukan (performance production and laboratory), serta seniman-tinggal (artist-in-residence).

Yayasan Teater Garasi telah bekerja sama dan didukung oleh Open Society Foundation (2001-2002), Cultural Program of the Royal Netherlands Embassy (2007-2008), Hivos Foundation (2002-2015) dan Ford Foundation (2017 – …)
