Excerpt from Wonderful Indonesia:
An extraordinary journey through war and love, Matah Ati is based on a true story set in the ancient Mangkunegaran Palace in Solo, otherwise also known as the city of Surakarta, Central Java. A gripping story of passion, loss and courage, Matah Ati takes audiences on an epic journey back in time to 18th century Java through its operatic Javanese songs and music. This glorious tale of love and war is told through its central character, Rubiyah, a Javanese peasant woman who fought against Dutch colonialism alongside a local prince, called Raden Mas Said. She married Raden Mas Said and became the mother of kings in the then Mangkunegaran Sultanate in Solo, Central Java.
Inspired by the classic Javanese Langendriyan, a dance-drama performance that collaborates music, narration and movement, the Matah Ati performance has successfully presented ancient Javanese values in culture and traditions for modern viewers. The endless standing ovation from the press and invitees as the cast and creators appeared to give their final bows was solid proof of this.
For this and prior performances in Singapore, Jakarta, and finally Solo, we created stylistic illustrations and 3D/2D animation to bring Jay Subyakto's stage to life. the stage itself is slanted to create a forced-perspective look for the viewers, as the story unfold in a grand performance in Javanese Legendrian Style.
