Noted filmmaker Hanung Bramantyo, actor Butet Kertaredjasa and script writer Agus Noor have collaborated on the satirical comedy Nyonya-Nyonya Istana (Ladies of the Palace) on Nov. 16-17 at Graha Bhakti Budaya in Taman Ismail Marzuki. The show tells the story of influential women who sit behind authoritative people in a country’s Presidential Palace. The ladies of the palace have a powerful influence on any decision made by the authority.

The essence of most Cabinet meetings is controlled by the ladies through their high-class social gatherings. Besides Butet, the production will also feature comics Marwoto and Cak Lontong. Visit tamanismailmarzuki.com for information.


For artist Nasirun, collecting invitation cards from various art events was a fun pass time. Since 2008, Nasirun started to paint on them, based on their existing patterns and images. He created a dialogue with the cards, completing or replacing some patterns and images that existed on the cards to meet his style. Nasirun wrapped up this project after around 1,000 invitation cards. His work is on display for the public at Galeri Salihara in South Jakarta from Nov. 3 to 25.
