Fitri Setyaningsih is a choreographer based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Sabana Grande was a piece she choreographed in 2008 inspired by an artist residency experience she had in Venezuela. The choreography was developed over the course of several months, with four dancers including myself, and two musicians. The final production was presented at Salihara Theater in Jakarta, and the French-Indonesian Cultural Center (Lembaga Indonesia Perancis) in Yogyakarta. Fitri was a frequent collaborator during my time in Indonesia.
