Casting Lights and Shadows upon Kiamat

We spoke with Berlin-based transmedia artist Thais Nepomuceno to understand her process of bringing the visual aspect of the theatre-musical Kiamat to life.

Manufacturing Kiamat

Ayat-Ayat Kiamat

Umi Maisaroh read a haunting mantra during the performance of Kiamat. It tells a story of doomsday through eerie verses.
(In Bahasa Indonesia)

Kiamat is an experimental music theatre project initiated by Soydivision Collective and L_KW,  directed and co-produced by Rabih Beaini of Morphine Records. The recent album of the Indonesian experimental music duo, Senyawa, inspires the piece. Kiamat (Day of Judgement), one of the compositions in the album Alkisah, becomes the central theme of this piece.

To accompany the experimental music theatre, KIAMAT, we are releasing the second print edition of our zine!
