Celebration of Popular Consultation Anniversary Concert and Film Screening

On the 30th August 1999, the people of Timor-Leste were given the opportunity for an independent future. In a UN sponsored Referendum, known in Timor as a Popular Consultation, an overwhelming majority of East Timorese voted for independence from Indonesia. What followed was another bitter struggle as violence and destruction gripped the country. The majority of the country’s infrastructure was destroyed during this punitive period.

15 years after this birth of a nation, Arte Publiku brings together an intergenerational mix of the best contemporary dance and theatre groups in the country to join musicians from Timor-Leste and it’s neighbors. Here we will celebrate the indomitable spirit of freedom, progress and unity in a concert that embodies the realities of inclusivity, democracy and peace building. As the country has healed and begun to flourish, the arts have helped to give voice to a country’s pain, it’s struggle, and it’s bright future.

Following are presentations from traditional dance company LO’UD from Lospalos and Timorese dance groups Timor Furak, San Antonio and Millenium Tais – groups that currently tour the world, exposing the culture of Timor to other lands.

Mix this with International music collaborations and special guests Klamar and you have one incredible night with an eye on the past and an ear to the future.


Date/Time: Saturday 30th August from 7pm
Location: Largo de Lecidere
