dc.description.abstract In October 2002 I performed and exhibited Troppo Obscura: A Peepshow of Historical Perversity at the Performance Space as part of the multicultural Arts festival, Carnivale, in Sydney, Australia. Troppo Obscura was a multimedia installation that explored some aspects of the complex relationships between the West and Asia. The work looked at a large range of possibilities, from the colonial gaze through to personal relationships forged through artistic endeavour. This paper focuses on one such personal relationship addressed in the installation, namely that between traditional master mask dancer Ibu Sawitri from Cirebon on the West coast of Java, Indonesia, and myself, a Sydney based contemporary dancer and performance artist. Between 1992 and 1999, the year Ibu Sawitri passed away, I spent many long-term visits learning dance and living in Ibu Sawitri s house in Losari. en_US
