This fellowship investigates how dance supports dialogue between ethnic and religious communities in Indonesia. Hosted by the Centre for Religious and Cross-Cultural Studies, Universitas Gadjah Mada, I engage with cross-disciplinary approaches through exchanges with researchers, policy makers, dance artists and community participants. I examine the work of celebrated Indonesian dance artist Suprapto Suryodarmo in Solo and practitioners of 'Amerta Movement' in Indonesia, to observe how they facilitate embodied awareness and cross-community interaction through dance in outdoor public sites; and consider how dance research can illuminate embodiment as a facet of working across ethnic, religious and geographical divides.
