NUANSA’12: Canting – A Dying Family, A Dyeing Tradition was based on a novel by Arswendo Atmowiloto. It recounted the story of the Ngabehi Sestrokesuma family, which owned a family batik factory with hundreds of workers. Despite the struggles faced by the family, the story ultimately reveals how modern and conservative values can co-exist and complement each other. Canting highlighted Indonesia’s traditional batik-making and Javanese dances, music and culture. 
The artistic quality of NUANSA’12 has increased even further. The production was held in the highly coveted UCC Hall, NUS, attracting a full house of 900 audience. The play was also supported by a more elaborate costume, lighting, music and dance.
