about

IN...SE... is a two-hour operatic work combining voices, gamelan, shadow theater, and dance that resulted from collaboration between Cypriot composer Andys Skordis, Serbian screenwriter Jelen Vuksanovic, and the Bali-based Narwastu Art Communtiy. The score creates expansive and imaginative textures that cleary draw inspiration from Balinese gamelan, but without slipping into superficial imitation. The libretto integrates the Balinese concepts Sekala and Niskala (seen and unseen) and a fictional character from the present with the adventures of Bima in the Bima Suci. The result is a ritual atmosphere wherein light and dark meet, two clashing worlds entangle, and the protagonists are transformed.

The opera was premeried and recorded in a carefully designed space that encouraged the audience to feel as if they were part of a shared and transformative experience. All musicians, performers, and singers surrounded the audience, creating an atmosphere where everyone could undergo a mental, physical, and psychological journey together.
