A list of (almost) everything I’ve ever been in…
1. “Makan Malam” (2015, short film)
Character name: Putri
What was the film about? Kind of like “Hamlet” reimagined in a Padangnese setting if Ophelia never drowned actually married Mas Hamlet. And Claudius is the family doctor, who’s a old family friend, and isn’t necessarily evil (which kind of makes it even worse—because how can you hate the guy? So Hammy ends up looking like an even shittier human being for being a whiny pissy widdle Oedipal baby). Still as creepily Freudian as Shakespeare’s version, though…
2. “Naked Mole Rats In The World of Darkness”, Jakarta Players (2015, theatre)
Character name: Carol, Marion Barnes, et al. (Various characters, about five-ish Homo sapiens characters in total, plus one lion)
What was the play about? A play about gender-relations (I was in ~3 monologues of the opening sequence, “It’s Just Clothes”, a traveller at the airport, the lawyer scene, and “you ruined my life” as happy ’50s housewife/lion).
3. “EX.” (2015, short film)
Character name: Kirana
What was the film about? An insecure journalist is assigned to interview her fiancé’s ex-girlfriend and learns more than she bargained for.
4. “A Time For Us” [Indonesian Title: Ruang/Waktu] (2016, short film)
Character name: Galuh
What was the film about? Open for interpretation.
5. “Beyond Therapy” (2017, theatre)
Character name: Prudence
What was the play about? Bruce and Prudence are deeply into therapy. Prudence’s macho therapist is urging her to be more assertive, while Bruce’s wacky female therapist wants him to meet women by placing a personal ad. She does not fully comprehend that Bruce has a male lover who is not pleased by Bruce’s desire to date a woman. Bruce doesn’t know how to handle poor, nervous Prudence, and Prudence doesn’t know what to make of her unpredictable new boyfriend. They do learn to live beyond therapy in this delightful Off Broadway hit that moved successfully to Broadway. (SamuelFrench.com)
