NUANSA’15 - Flowers of Asmat recites the story of twin sisters Teweraut and Anggrek, born in a rural Asmat village of Ewer. Both of them live a peaceful and unsuspecting life. Their lives take an unexpected turn when their father breathes his last. Anggrek believes that continuing her traditional life would bring her happiness and so, decides to marry the newly elected village chief, Akatpits. Teweraut, on the other hand, pursues education in Jakarta so that she can return to Ewer as a teacher. The two inevitably have to part ways. The musical is adapted from Ani Sekarningsih’s most celebrated work “Namaku Teweraut.” Flowers of Asmat” brings us the exotic culture of the Asmat society and seeks to question the relevance of our identity in the midst of an increasingly homogeneous world.
