These works and their cultural history will be showcased on the body to audiences with interpretive commentary.

In Indonesia, Presiden Tidore has a growing audience, attracted by his dynamic performances supported by performers, musicians and artists. His music draws on the traditions and history of his home island, Tidore, and calls for a greater recognition of the complex and vibrant contemporary cultures that lie away from the main centres of Indonesian culture in Java and Bali.
