Journey of a Groningen Girl
Well I am back from Bali even more inspired than before! A wonderful opening and great publicity for the book launch of The Sky Is My Religion. It was really wonderful to work with the artists, dancers and musicians who worked tirelessly with me to produce a truly memorable opening! We had a lot of support from many people and I would like to thank everyone who has supported the project so far, Libby Hathorn, Bali Arts Magazine, Henny, Don Dulang, Bali TV, Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, Bali Navi website, Bali Taksu, Beat Magazine,Dewangga Gallery, Bali Post and all the Peliatan Troupe. The wonderful people who made this project special were the dancers and musicians from Peliatan in Ubud.Their work was outstanding and putting poetry, music, and dance together was really a great joy. Kadek Ferry, Mayumi Inouye and De Kamandanu (Made) made the performances so memorable! The artists also have beautiful work exhibited and it was very sad for me to leave the gallery after doing 9 poetry perfomances in amongst the artworks!
I hope the artist will sell their works at this outstanding exhibition and if you have not been into see it please try to if in Bali! Or pass it on if you know someone visiting, it is open until 30th October.Please take the time to look at the websites showcasing the event and check out the opening video I put up today. Further updates will follow.Please enjoy and make sure you get your copy of the poetry volume with the beautiful art work by I Wayan Meja and I Wayan Eka Partama (Gilo) you can buy it on Blurb!
