Bride Waves: The Cleft Ikonitas Culture
By Sahrul N
Ali Sukri a dance performance entitled "The bride Waves" is a cultural cleavage through the icons universalised motion. Property in such a way as to form grooves that life is always moving without interruption and to the various meanings of human life. Only through a large plastic sheet, the show is filled with inner conflicts of man, especially men who are stricken by disasters. In this case the tragedy of Aceh became the main inspiration of this show. Civil war is not over yet another disaster comes barely anything left. However, this is all there is silver lining. God seemed not bear to see suffering people of Aceh due to a war that never ended. Lord ask for her hand, and keep him away from the arena of war.
"Bride Waves" clearly implies that the disaster that comes from the sea (read: the tsunami) was so heartbreaking and nature seemed to woo the people to be a hero and placed eternity in heaven with his girlfriend. Plastics which floated like a big wave rocked the singing and mourning the dead. Motion graceful dancers who formed the talking bodies, bodies are meaningful.
