Our friends in Indonesia Permias (The CU Indonesian association) asked Inner Wave to join them in sharing the culture of Indonesia. They provided the dance in the form of the Acehnese Tari Saman, and we provided the Pencak Silat.
00:00-04:00 Tari Saman
04:00-06:45 Barongsai – Chinese/Indonesian Lion Dance
06:45-07:30 Jurus tongkat / Staff form
07:30-08:00 Jurus pisau / Knife form
08:00-09:00 Kembangan / Free flow fighting
09:00-09:40 Jurus pecut / Whip form
09:40 – 10:20 Pecahan besi / Breaking of steel files
10:20 – 11:00 Hormat / Closing
I should note that while the breakdown above says jurus/form, for the most part everything in this demo came from our kembangan. Instead of following a set pattern, we simply tried to follow the principles of silat and the context of the situation to create our own interpretation of the motion.
