Ukel Jagat : The Counterclockwise

(15 Min – Performance)

Art Director : Dr Ayo Sunaryo M. Pd,

Choreographer : Galih Mahara

Ukel The Counterclockwise trying to show Ukel’s motion that dialectics within the reality filled with a pile of narratives. A tradition that fights for its existence today from the onslaught of modernism stream. As if it was the destiny of Ukel’s own movement. Which basically is Sundanese dance movement that turning the wrist counter-clockwise.

This performance offers a perspective on building reality, by accommodating masculine and feminine elements. Both of these elemental characters are displayed in turn. The intention is not to clash with each other and compete. But they exert each other’s advantages in order to counterclockwise current era.

Menunjukkan gerak Ukel bahwa dialektika di dalam realita penuh dengan setumpuk narasi. Sebuah tradisi yang memperjuangkan eksistensinya saat ini dari gempuran arus modernisme. Seolah-olah itu adalah takdir gerakan Ukel sendiri. Yang pada dasarnya adalah gerakan tari Sunda yang memutar pergelangan tangan berlawanan arah jarum jam. Pertunjukan ini menawarkan perspektif dalam membangun realitas, dengan mengakomodir unsur maskulin dan feminim. Kedua karakter elemental ini ditampilkan secara bergantian. Tujuannya bukan untuk saling bentrok dan bersaing. Tapi mereka menggunakan keunggulan satu sama lain untuk melawan era saat ini.
