In June of 2010 the Purnati Dance Theater Company went to the Netherlands with the “Dance for Peace" project , specially choreographed music and dance pieces from Bali and South Sulawesi. Traditional dances of the two islands were presented in a contemporary way. "Dance for Peace" expresses the symbolism of the cycle of birth, destruction and rebirth. This provides a unique, exhilarating and poetic spectacle using dance, music, song, masks and fire.
The Purnati Dance Theater Company was established in 2000 by international dancers and actors from the different islands of the Indonesian Archipelago. The group is based near Ubud , the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali. Over the past decade Purnati Dance Theater Company has developed new projects and techniques, which have often resulted in international collaborations and productions with artists from Europe, Asia and the United States.
