Table Talk on a Boat

Abstract or Summary of Project

Table talk on a Boat is a wayang performance about a fictional story of how three Chinese-Indonesian Independence heroes find themselves travelling on an Indonesian Independence Warship heading to Singapore. As hilarity ensues, the table talk between the ship’s captain, a disillusioned journalist, and a female paramedic / spy leads to discussions on issues of race, history, and power.

Table talk on a Boat is an invitation for Indonesians to revisit and reflect on Indonesia’s past. It is a call to rediscover the positive legacy that the Chinese-Indonesians left on the nation’s history.
