In Jakarta, on Sunday 17st of March 2013 Yayasan Sahabat Anak held a marginalized children theater show called “Kreasi Anak Negeri 3” (KAN). The event has been held annually for the past three years and it’s performed by one of the tutorial area of Sahabat Anak, Sahabat Anak Cijantung (SAC).

The theme of KAN 3 was “Jelajah Nusantara”. This theme was chosen by volunteers in Sahabat Anak Cijantung as they see many children who still doesn’t know about the Indonesian archipelago such as the provinces Indonesia, traditional houses, tradition tools, religions, ethnic groups, and race.

This year’s title performance of “Mustika Nusantara” included 60 kids, 10 volunteers, and 40 profesional volunteers.

The performance tells the story of three naughty boys whose punishment from Dewi Tara and Barong was to finds five Mustika Nusantara located in several regions in Indonesia, like West Sumatera, Bali, Central  Java, Maluku, and Borneo.

This Show was directed by Budi Jasin, his name is familiar in Indonesian theater and Budi Santoso has been a permanent instructor of KAN for the last years.

KAN 3 was held at Salihara Theater to introduce Sahabat Anak mission to the public. A total of 220 tickets were sold for Rp. 75.000,- and there were no empty audience seats. Many positive responses from the public were received.

The expectation from this event was to change public stereotype about street kids from an image of sloopy, uneducated, and naughty to a positively image of being valuable and talented if we give them the opportunity to develop.

See you at next performance Kreasi Anak Negeri 4

Salam Nusantara!!
