Performance Art in Indonesia is considered a new genre. Despite the pro and contrafs in society, even in art community, the genre is growing and developing, even though in sporadic ways. To some of the people or groups, they already took serious process in every stage, both in researches as well as event organizing and discourse development. Some individuals have already honored in some international forums.
Further, taking the account of some observations done previously, it is found some basic discourse gaps in Performance Art. It is well-known, that even in art community and performance art community we would find facts that the study discourse of performance art history have not been acknowledge. This gap has lead into an instant or 'just do it' mode compare to 'think first' before proceeding with your ideas. Later it resulted on stagnation within the process. The concept presented has thin layer of argumentation, because people tends to rely on impulsion compare to rationalization descriptive chain, and or even deny the critiques after all. This influence the richness of performance shapes. Some of the performers in the community even declared they resign due to lack of fresh ideas.
Like or not, understandable or not, the genre is a reality and need to be acknowledge in their own space as one of the science, no bargain.
Looking at the metaphor of birds migrating [Birds Migration]. These can not be obstructed. The metaphor pictures thousands of birds migrating from one continent to the other, reproduction, assimilating, create new species based on their continent specification or even preferred to keep their origin, daring the epidemic faced today, bringing hundreds of dead toll from the avian flu. Itfs unstoppable.
Even so, following the migrating birds which runs their ecosystem as the nature law, parallel with the wind, soaring high up into the wide sky, wings glaring and open gracefully, sailing a new frontier, seedlings other life, seeds, plants, rice, yeats, flowers, pioneering the blossoms of flowers and the ripe of fruits, dazzling trees, endemic species surviving to find their food, in a harmony, in a restless livelihood or stability, always moving from one phase of life towards another, designing new cells and oasis.
Birds Migration : Indonesia International Performance Art Event [ IIPAE ] 2006 aimed to self-analog with the above description. The event held variety of spirits within numbers of event with special theme 'Bird Migration" located within several venues. The main spirit is to gather networking between the activists in various events and programs, based on common awareness of the importance in history study of the performance art spreading as a genre in involving actors and many messages in raising awareness towards the political, social, individual, cultural and more. These need further understanding and new strategy in dealing with gcurrenth form, later creating the gpresenth creations.
The event hopefully could give aspirations for many people related, at least in the knowledge aspect. Together with the Indonesian National Gallery (Galeri Nasional Indonesia ) as the national leading arts institution, it is hope that the event could become one of the main support in art and science, not for Indonesia, but also for the world.
