June 22, 2015 in DARC Archive , Documentation , Home

Suprapto Suryodarmo, is the purveyor of Amerta, a meditative dance practice. Since the mid-1980s, many thousands of people in the West (as well as many more in Bali and his native Java) have witnessed, worked with or been otherwise influenced by Prapto and his Amerta Movement / Joged Amerta practice.

Strongly situated in the daily life, culture, traditions and ecology of Central Java, Prapto’s Amerta Movement practice draws on Theravada Buddhism, Sumarah meditation, sites like Borobudur temple, Candi Sukuh, and coastal Parangtritis – as well as his internationally-known Padepokan Lemah Putih in Mojosongo, Solo.

Performed at Avebury, UK, in June 2015.
