untitled cow number one
sapi tak berjudul nomor satu
Written and directed by Cultural Medallion recipients Haresh Sharma and Alvin Tan respectively, untitled cow number one is about the journey of a widowed cow. The play, which is divided into 12 sections and covers the 12 days of mourning, is strongly influenced by Hindu and Buddhist texts, images and myths. This monodrama is performed by Gloria Tan for the first time in Bahasa Indonesia.
UCNO has been performed in Macau International Fringe Festival (2000) Asian Theatre Festival in Busan (2002), National Theatre Festival in New Delhi (2003), and M1 Singapore Fringe Festival in Singapore (2015).
UCNO's script opens up opportunities that allow artist the freedom to reinterpret the piece in accordance to their own style. We will see for the first time how this monodrama interacts with different cultural backgrounds together with WAFT-LAB (Surabaya) as the main artistic collaborator who will work on the audiovisual installations.
