Time Out says

This melding of contemporary Indonesian dance and physical storytelling is a highlight of Asia TOPA festival

In 2018, award-winning Indonesian artist Kamila Andini screened her film The Seen and Unseen at Melbourne International Film Festival. An internationally acclaimed portrait of childhood painted with contemporary Indonesian culture, the film is now being turned into a live performance work by Andini. It's promising to be a haunting and night of performance, meditating on life, grief and hope.

Commissioned by Asia TOPA, The Seen and Unseen brings together Andini with Indonesian choreographer Ida Ayu Wayan Satyani. They're being joined by Australian theatremakers Adena Jacobs, Eugyeene Teh and Jenny Hector to create a unique, cross-cultural theatrical experience, performed by a cast of chld performers from Bali's Komunitas Bumi Bajra.
