The stories go on: performing onstage allows Uswatun Hasanah, from Luwuk, Java to express sides of her personality discouraged by her Muslim community. Rosalia Bubu, from Loo Neke, West Timor wove the face of an ancestor who visited her in a dream. Veronica Kanyan, from Sintang, Kalimantan led her community through complex rituals to improve their red dye. Every individual has a story: get out there, and hear for yourself!
