"Biar tenang jiwaku..."

A speculative performance about the complication of love. This is explored with a satirical investigation of evergreen Jiwang songs in the 1980s-1990s.

The work can be a conspiracy theory on why collective sadness and sympathy shape our habits and traits in society.

Meaning of Jiwang:
Jiwang is a Malay slang referring to a state of romantic, poetic and heartbreaking love. The burst of Jiwang songs (slow rock music) in the 1980s-1990s accompanied the growth of the term Jiwang. It shares an individual’s emotional relationship with music and as a social marker (e.g. a Jiwang person).
