Ardhanari Performing Arts Studio & Management
Organiser from Indonesia
Ardhanari came together as a natural formation of a family of creatives, in dance and music of modern and traditional styles. Its members bear experience and hold expertise of on and off stage performing arts management, with an extensive track record of partnerships supported by diplomatic bodies, educational institutions and multinational companies in all its productions.
The name Ardhanari is inspired by the sanksrit word for 'half (ardha), depicted by a man and a woman at both sides of the logo. The word nari, is derived from the Indonesian word for 'dance', tari, shown by the hands in the middle of the logo. The image itself is of a gunungan, the traditional interpretation of the Creation story, portrayed in all the welcoming scenes of traditional puppet shows and theatrical performances in Java.
