      SYNOPSIS

      ENGLISH | MELAYU

      "Tiji Tibeh, Mati Siji, Mati Kabeh…"

      For when one is gone, the others are also gone; where one is blessed, the others are blessed as well…

      Such are the words of vow by the valiant soldiers of Raden Mas Said (R M Said) the first King of Java. In love as in war, the words ring true. A gripping story of passion, loss and courage, Matah Ati takes audiences on an epic journey back in time to 17th century Java. Through operatic Javanese song and music combined with a contemporary adaptation of Surakartan-Javanese classical dance style, this tale of victory in love and war is told through the life story of central character Rubiah, a female war hero of the 40-woman army which fought during the time of the Dutch invasion and the reign of the Mangkunegara Kingdom in Indonesia.

      Written and produced by Atilah Soeryadjaya, a direct descendant of the Mangkunegaran royal family and court dancer in the Surakarta Palace, Matah Ati is a tribute to the history and sacred artistry of the Javanese, in a performance that is simultaneously theatrical in expression yet meditative in tone.

      "Tiji Tibeh, Mati Siji, Mati Kabeh..."

      Mati satu, mati semua; Bahagia satu, bahagia semua.

Matah Ati membawa penonton kembali kepada abad ke-17 di Jawa dengan kisah-kisah tentang perjuangan, kehilangan dan keberanian. Semuanya diiringi dengan muzik bercorak opera Jawa serta digabungkan dengan adaptasi kontemporari dari tari klasik Jawa Surakarta. Kisah kemenangan dalam percintaan dan peperangan diceritakan melalui watak utama, Rubiah, ketua kepada 40 perajurit wanita yang berjuang sewaktu serangan Belanda sewaktu pemerintahan Kerajaan Mangkunegara di Indonesia.

      Matah Ati dikarya dan diterbitkan oleh Atilah Soeryadjaya, seorang keturunan keluarga diraja Mangkunegara dan penari di Istana Surakarta. Persembahan teater tari yang membawa seribu renungan ini dikhususkan untuk sejarah dan seni Jawa yang kmengasyikkan.
