DIDIK NINI THOWOK
Didik Hadiprayitno, better known as Didik Nini Thowok, is one of Indonesia’s most well-known dancers, choreographers, and mask performers.
For southernmost 2017, Didik is one of the instructors for the 'Bodies in History: Physical Masterclass', and will also be performing in the triple bill presentation.
His performance style carries on a tradition of Javanese female impersonation by a male dancer, which originated in Javanese palaces in the eighteenth century with males playing females.
Didik’s study of cross-gender performance throughout Asia and the world fuels his playful, modern performance, which involves solo mask dances that combine mysterious androgyny and comic sexual impersonation.

Small, intimate crowds are sometimes the best. That night was awesome and I met some really dope individuals. My #poetry continues to allow me to grow. #PoetLife#poet#performer#spokenword
