Discussion and personal, creative connection are among the connective tissues which make Sanggar O great. Robert and Liswati offer a unique environment in which to work and dream—and where you can rejuvenate with rest and excellent food. With them and the people they surround themselves with, there was an open exchange of ideas. While in residence I was able to have several remarkable experiences which stemmed directly from their efforts to espouse and preserve and propel the arts. I am very thankful for the allowance of space and time for transformation.
