Jasmine Wirawan visits Melbourne: Festival Indonesia 2012

Storytelling Australia (Vic) welcomes Jasmine Wirawan.

Jasmine  is a 14 years old and has participated in various festivals and competitions, among others the well known Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali, Indonesia; Penang International Kids Storytelling Festival in Penang, Malaysia;  KPBA International Storytelling Festival, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Besides storytelling, she loves to dance ballet, hiphop, and traditional Indonesian dances. She is a member of the well known Last Minute Street Crew – street dance.

What is unique about Jasmine is that she incorporates dance with the art of storytelling.

Jasmine will be telling an Indonesian folklore from the island of Sumatra called “Princess Kemang”. Unlike the usual graceful and ladylike princesses, Princess Kemang was tough and mastered in sword fighting. One day she went to the jungle to go hunting and met an evil tiger, a mysterious old man and magic tree. Want to know what happened? Please come and enjoy this unique Indonesian folklore.

Every story she tells will have positive moral messages of encouragement to kids and adults.
