CARRIAGEWORKS and CAAP present:
Join us in The Longhouse for a sneak peek at the artistic processes behind CAAP’s exciting new work in development, Siti Rubiyah by Katrina Irawati Graham.
Siti Rubiyah was a minor character in the 1975 Indonesian novel, Harimau Harimau, by Mochtar Lubis, abandoned to a horrifying fate at the hands of her abusive witchdoctor husband, deep in the jungles of Sumatra. This play travels into the jungle to imagine what might have happened next. The story unfolds like an allegorical fable for contemporary times drawing on Indonesian mythology and symbolism, magic realism and horror.
Meet the creative team, including writer Katrina Irawati Graham, director Tessa Leong, set and lighting designer Govin Ruben, movement director Danielle Micich, media artist Bambang N Karim and sound designer Michael Toisuta, as they discuss the challenge of theatricalising the horror and magic of this fantastic story.
Siti Rubiyah is part of the Carriageworks In Development program. The play was developed through the LOTUS Playwriting Project, an initiative of CAAP and Playwriting Australia supported by the Girgensohn Foundation.
