NUANSA’13: Dance of the Earth originally written by Oka Rusmini, revolved around the life and struggles of Balinese women. Being born as a Sudra – a person of the lowest echelon in the caste system – Luh Sekar strove to “marry up” for the sake of achieving nobility. After painstaking efforts and endless prayers, her dream came true. Being the prima donna dancer of her village, Sekar caught a Brahman man’s attention which granted her way to climb to the highest caste, Brahman. Just when her dream to marry a Brahman came true, she found out that her marriage was nothing like what she dreamt of as she was caught in her husband’s search for ephemeral pleasure and undue lust. NUANSA’13 revolved around the themes of happiness, true love, freedom, and sacrifice.
