Extension students from Indonesia to perform two music and dance programs: 'A rare opportunity'


All 156 Indonesian students who are currently attending Extension’s English Language Institute are also members of a cultural performance troupe that celebrates the art, music and culture of their native land.

The renowned troupe, whose study-abroad program is sponsored by the International Islamic Education Council (IIEC) of Indonesia, has performed in Canada and other countries in years past and will be performing in a U.S. venue this year for the first time.

9-23-14-photo-indonesia2.jpgPerforming together, they will present “Discover the Radiance of the Equatorial Emerald” on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 7 pm to 9 pm, at the downtown Spreckels Theatre (121 Broadway Street, San Diego, CA 92101).   They will perform again on Friday, Oct. 3, from 3 pm to 5 pm, at UC San Diego’s Mandeville Auditorium.

Both performances are free to the public, based on IIEC’s desire to give back to the community hosting its students during their study-abroad experience.

“We are so proud that the IIEC chose San Diego to make their American debut,” said Roxanne Nuhaily, director of Extension’s International Programs. “This is a rare opportunity for the San Diego community to experience a unique and exciting performance of Indonesian music and dance.”

An archipelago comprised of more than 17,000 islands with some 300 different ethnic groups, Indonesia has a multi-faceted cultural identity shaped by Indian, Arabic, Chinese, and European influences.

Both shows are presented free and open to the public. Seats are limited, so registration via Eventbrite is necessary.

  • Saturday, Sept. 27 evening show

  • Friday, Oct. 3 afternoon performance at UC San Diego
