We travel from Bali to Jakarta on board of the schooner ship Arka Kinari, the new floating cultural intervention by artists Filastine & Nova. This touring production powered by the sun is both method and message; utilising music to sound the alarm for climate change and cinematic visuals to imagine life after the carbon economy.
Arka Kinari is a multimedia performance shared from a traditional schooner ship, using live music and cinematic visuals to inspire resilience to the coming floods, resistance to the carbon economy, and re- engagement with the great public space: the sea. When docked at public waterfronts the ship transforms into a stage and the sails into projection screens for an audience viewing from the ground.
Coherent with the message of the performance, Arka Kinari is an example of sustainability; a touring production delivered by wind and powered by renewables.
The immersive film will map ecological conflicts and regional threats, occurring on land and water; will link stories and places of the Nusantara and beyond; and capture the intangible heritage of the communities in Indonesia we engage with.
