Based on one of nature’s deadlist disasters that killed over 30,000 people, this piece explores the lives of the people most affected – those who lived at the heart of the disaster. Using dance, martial arts, and music of the Minangkabau culture, this gripping dance-drama relives the devastation and rehabilitation following the disaster. The message of Under The Volcano that connects all natural disasters in the world is as true today as it was in 1883 – to survive in this world, one must depend on the help of others.
