I La Galigo
Theatre, dancevisionary work by Robert Wilson. I LA GALIGO features a cast of 50 Indonesia’s finest performers. The music has been researched and composed by Indonesian master Rahayu Supanggah.
The theatre work is inspired by Sureq Galigo (Galigo Manuscripts), an epic poem of the Bugis people of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Longer than the Mahabharata and comparable to the adventures of Ulysses in Homer’s Odyssey, the epic tells the story of the creation of the Middle World and the first six generations of its inhabitants.
