This archive exhibition offers a perspective to see IDF beyond its role as a supporter in dance work productions, dance events, or the Indonesian contemporary dance market, but as a discourse site where we get to understand parts of Indonesian dance history, in its relations with the dynamics beyond the local dance scene that affects it. Through this perspective, IDF’s position as a force that shapes dance system will be shifted to the dance system component that is partly choreographed by the socio-political dynamics that surround it. Instead of presenting IDF’s 30-year journey in chronological order, this exhibition marks the epiphanies that have turned into key episodes in the festival’s aesthetic vision, which is connected to the dance scene dynamic, the economic, political, and cultural situation on the national, regional, and global level, as well as the digital communications technology development. Besides, we can also see the aesthetic inclinations that appear around those key episodes. Through the critical sense, we recognize the choreography spectres that shadow the dance practices inherited to us today. Perhaps, we will also start to recognize those choreography spectres in daily life, in which we continuously fight for justice, rule over, define identity, and discipline our bodies.
