Sudamala: From Epilog Calonarang Performance,

Pasar Kangen, and Royal Heritage Dinner at Pura Mangkunegaran Solo

Jakarta, 24 May 2023 - After successfully held the traditional theater performance of Sudamala: From Epilog Calonarang last year at the National Archives Building in Jakarta, Titimangsa will once again collaborate with Katadata and Pura Mangkunegaran Solo, supported by Bank Central Asia (BCA), to present the collaboration "Satu dalam Cita".

Satu dalam Cita is a series of events that consist of SUDAMALA Performance: Starting from Epilog Calonarang (June 24 & 25, 2023), Pasar Kangen (June 23-25, 2023), Royal Heritage Dinner (June 23-25, 2023), and other cultural activities hold at Pura Mangkunegaran, Solo.

Sudamala Producers, Nicholas Saputra and Happy Salma, have discussed with Gde Bayu Putra, Assistant Producer, to bring Sudamala the traditional theater performance outside of Jakarta. According to Nicholas Saputra and Happy Salma, Sudamala will return because following the successful performance last year in Jakarta and considered has a performance value that is relevant to the current context.

"The three of us have agreed to hold the Sudamala performance in Solo, specifically at Pura Mangkunegaran. Because, for us, this place is very ideal as it has a high historical value and is very open to accepting various forms of diverse culture from different regions," said Nicholas Saputra and Happy Salma.

Based on that, Nicholas Saputra and Happy Salma have long been in communication with the Mangkunegaran institution, which later in its journey partnered with Katadata. Titimangsa, Pura Mangkunegaran, and Katadata share the same feelings, perspectives, and concerns about the value of diversity and collaboration in the Indonesian archipelago.

In a historical context, the spirit of diversity and collaboration is clearly seen in the close relationship between Javanese and Balinese cultures, which has been established since 1929 by Tjokorda Gde Raka Sukawati, who visited Solo to attend the fifth Java Instituut Congress and delivered a speech about Balinese culture.

"Fundamentally, Javanese and Balinese peoples come from the same roots. In Mangkunegaran itself, during my great-grandfather era, KGPAA Mangkunegara VII, many cultural relationships were built with the kingdoms in Bali around the 1930s and 1940s," said KGPAA Mangkoenagoro X.

"We see the past not only as a memory but as a foundation for the present and the future. The Sudamala performance, which collaborates with Titimangsa and Bali's maestros and artists, is part of an effort to revive the cultural relationship between Mangkunegaran and Bali."

KGPAA Mangkoenagoro X added, "This is also in line with our vision to make Mangkunegaran a cultural hub for all of Indonesia, even the world. Mangkunegaran is a place to celebrate culture and show that diversity actually strengthens our connections with each other."

CEO & Co-Founder of Katadata, Metta Dharmasaputra, said that as a data-based media company, Katadata has a responsibility to foster the spirit of diversity and to develop and promote cultural literacy to the public.

"From this event, the plan for the next collaboration with Pura Mangkunegaran and Titimangsa to hold the series of events SATU DALAM CITA was conceived, consisting of the Sudamala dance performance, Pasar Kangen, and Royal Heritage Dinner."

Sudamala: From Epilog Calonarang

Sudamala: Dari Epilog Calonarang performance is a collaborative work involving 90 artists and maestros from Bali and other cities, presented at Pamedan Pura Mangkunegaran. It tells the story of Walu Nateng Dirah, a woman with extraordinary power and knowledge, feared by many, including the reigning king at that time, Airlangga. This also caused not many young men to dare to approach his beloved daughter, Ratna Manggali. Walu Nateng Dirah was deeply disappointed and expressed her sorrow by spreading various plagues. Her wounded heart was temporarily healed when Ratna Manggali married Mpu Bahula.

However, their marriage life was tarnished by Mpu Bahula. He was actually a messenger of the priests loyal to King Airlangga, who took the powerful scriptures belonging to Walu Nateng Dirah, which eventually fell into the hands of Mpu Bharada. Walu Nateng Dirah was disappointed and furious, and her anger caused a plague that affected many people. After Mpu Bharada recognized the knowledge possessed by Walu Nateng Dirah, he challenged her to a duel of knowledge in order to resolve the disaster and plague that had befallen them.


Who will win in this battle?

Will it be Walu Nateng Dirah, the disappointed powerful woman?

Or will it be Mpu Bharada, a sacred Brahmin, the beloved priest of King Airlangga?
