The continuation of art practice has always been a challenging matter for all art stakeholders in Indonesia to think about. This is mainly due to limited and unequal infrastructure and economic resources, but also other important aspects that are interrelated, such as contextual artistic vision, human resources, target audience, development of digital communication technology, mobility of people and goods, professional networks, also the dynamics of the art field both in the local, national, and global aspects. Meanwhile, performing arts has a distinctive pattern because this sustainability issue does not only apply to groups, but also individual artists.
