Rianto is a dancer from Banyumas Indonesia, who specialises in the traditional erotic dance of Lengger. He mastered the cross-gender dance repertoire at a very young age, and continues to enchant male viewers with his seductive female impersonation. Rianto also performs and collaborates with many contemporary choreographers. Since moving to Tokyo in 2003, he has developed different choreographic practices, deriving and departing from his traditional beginning. The documentary performance explores the tension between these choreographic practices.
