Artist-in-Residence

Emiko Saraswati Susilo is a choreographer, dancer, and vocalist known for her dynamic and soulful performance and for choreography that delves into questions of the contemporary world through work that is at once innovative and yet deeply rooted in tradition. Active in Balinese and Javanese performance for well over three decades, she began playing gamelan as a child and studied Balinese and Javanese dance under Ni Made Wiratini and the late master KRT Sasmintadipura. She has taught Balinese dance since 1992 and in 1997 became a founding member of Çudamani, where she is now Associate Director.
