Theatre Salihara has an important place in Indonesia's recent democratic struggle and was formed by journalists, artists and intellectual figures in response to the government's decision to ban the highly respected news magazine, Tempo, in 1994. Performances put on at the theater are wide and varied and include plays, concerts, dance and film, as well as lectures and discussions on art, culture and philosophy. Opportunities are also provided for both traditional and contemporary artists. The theater has an intimate feel to it and accommodates only up to 252 people in the audience, meaning you are very close to the action. You can find the theater in the south Jakarta suburb of Pasar Minggu. Check beforehand for details on performances. -Martin Jenkins
