Fbudi received the honour to make a costume for one of the programs of the Indonesian Ballet Gala, namely Megatruh. Megatruh is a new creation by choreographer Melanie Lane and was performed by Juliet Burnett. A meditation on identity and culture through a questioning body, mind & spirit is reflecting W.S.Rendra’s writing that is called ‘Considering Tradition’. And Megatruh is the manifestation of this idea.
fbudi designed for Juliet Burnett, one of the ballet dancer that performed as the conductor of the Megatruh in Ballet Gala. “The costume that I designed is inspired by Juliet, by Rendra’s considering tradition and by picture Juliet showed to me of her grandmother in Serimpi costume” says Felicia Budi, the creative mastermind behind fbudi.
Serimpi is known as a classical traditional dance from central Java, Indonesia. This costume is related to the Megatruh.
