Rianto's skill and conviction are undeniable. The Straits Times, Singapore
The transition between man and woman can be a simple gesture. A ritualised glance. A seductive movement that transcends gender.
The mesmeric and captivating Indonesian dancer Rianto performs the traditional erotic dance Lengger in this solo performance alongside new contemporary styles. Moments of beauty are interspersed with documentary accounts of Rianto’s life as an international dancer.
A dancer of incredible skill and precise control, Rianto brings exacting form to the stage with an endearing humility.
