Strong vocals, original music, warm and witty script, excellent production - impressive! Congratulations to the ICN 2018 committee! It was a MAGICAL experience indeed, as we were transported to the Torajan village in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Shopee is a proud sponsor of this ICN musical.

    HeyDiaspora
    "ICN 2018 - Lakonna: A Musical is a musical brought to you by the Indonesian students of Nanyang Technological University! Set in Tana Toraja, an exotic region in Sulawesi, Indonesia, Lakonna showcases a story of love and ambition, asking the question of how far human beings should go in chasing their dreams. All the costumes, set, musical arrangement, script, and choreography are all originally brought to you by the students themselves!"
    Arts Republic
    "The Torajan culture is often described as mythical and mysterious. However, you would get to witness the different facets of the Torajan culture as dancers leap and turn to celebrate love and victories in wars and mourn the deaths of loved ones. This original choreography fuses Torajan traditional tribal dance with contemporary dance to create an entirely unique dance style. This musical is more than just a story. With actors and dancers clothed in colourful traditional costumes and a stage decorated just like a Torajan village, this musical is set to be a 2-hour immersive cultural experience. For one night, you would be transported to the ancient village of Toraja."

    "Nirwata: A Musical is a rewritten story of the famous Balinese folklore, Jayaprana and Layonsari. Even with an addition of new characters, it still retained its original message. Nirwata is the 8th installment of ICN Cultural Production since 2007. This year, they succeeded in attracting more than 1200 audiences, filling the seats at University Cultural Centre Singapore."
    Broadway World Singapore
    "Constantly throughout the years, the Indonesian community in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), have never failed to amuse and enlighten the public with Indonesia's rich cultural history. Talented and passionate students from all kinds of academic backgrounds, all the way from engineering to art, have participated in this musical."
    Global Indonesian Voices
    "ICN is the place where creativity thrives, and where students can show the world their version of a folklore written long before their years. The fact that students, mostly majoring in science or engineering, of ages 18 to 24 can produce a marvel comparable to that of cinematic tropes is awe-inspiring."
