I Promise You Eternity Performance Art
23 September 2018 | 8 PM | Villa Rumah 23 Seminyak

I Promise You Eternity has a twofold purpose.

Firstly, to convey collective memories about Bali 1930s through the representation of recordings and footage by renowned foreigners who embraced Bali as longing, inspiration and home. The recording giants Odeon & Beka as well as scholars including McPhee, Covarrubias and de Maré endowed us with a vast legacy of self-reflection, rediscovery and purpose pertaining Bali, to which in a multifaceted way is honoured in contemporary times by revealing values that continues to be relevant, in art and in life.

Secondly, I Promise You Eternity is the strengthening of a creative bond among creative communities and forging passion to remember and be remembered as naturally as we ‘mortals’ are, especially on embracing and holding those intimate and intricate personal relationships, or as coined by dear, dearly Gentur Suria as Hubin ‘hubungan intim.’
