There is no denying that Western theater has strongly influenced the development of modern Indonesian theater in Indonesia but does this mean that Indonesian dramatists have not delved into indigenous theatrical traditions as a source for the enrichment of their plays?

SPEAKERS Cobina Gillitt | Joned Suryatmoko | Nano Riantiarno | Shinta Febriany (moderator)
