I do not want my name associated with this community in any capacity and wish to distance myself from Komunitas Salihara and the Stanislavski class. This is not an acting class, this was run like a pay-to-play programme misleadingly marketed as a ‘class’, which was run in a disability-unfriendly environment that is not safe for women:

I never lied about having ‘ambitions’, I just didn’t realise I was mostly doing it for love…

Ketika aku memainkan Cordelia rasanya seperti direngkuh erat, hangat. Dada dan lengan di kedua pipi. Merasa aman.

Who needs to be a “star” when the one you love loves you back?

Direngkuh

But I refuse to play a character whose sole role, purpose, and raison d’être is to be a mother. I can’t have children.

The teacher asked me why I wanted to play Cordelia, all I could do was cry because I couldn’t think of anything to say. It’s hard to explain.
