The Dusk. 2010
The Dusk is a poetic performance through the language of silence as a passage through which human energy is transmitted. Understanding silence as a space of comprehension that exists between the author and readers and a channel that connects experiences from the past and the present, Suryodarmo considers that one can rather acquire strong vitality and creativity through silence. For Suryodarmo, performance is a poetic action that conveys a poem. There, the artist connects herself, performers, and audiences and arouses the conscious of the audiences through the poem.
