Akar — US Premiere at The Roundhouse

Just back from our tour of Java, a year of cultural scholarship in Indonesia, and a semester of intensive study with Javanese master musician Danis Sugiyanto, Rumput is eager to present Akar (“roots”) to our hometown friends. Akar, a musical, graphic, and kinetic retelling of the tale of Jack & the Beanstalk, is the culmination of our research and practice in Indonesian and American art traditions these past 4 years.

This kid-friendly event will feature music, crankies (scrolling panoramic paintings), and puppetry. Join us!
