Join four storytellers from The Netherlands with a family history in Indonesia as they explore the influence of Indo-Dutch roots, colonialism and migration on their work. Through conversation and performance, they explore the karma of storytelling: how do the stories of past generations impact us and which ones do we choose to pass on to the next generation?

Bergabunglah dengan empat pendongeng dari Belanda dengan sejarah keluarga di Indonesia sebagaimana mereka mengeksplorasi pengaruh akar Indo-Belanda, kolonialisme dan migrasi dalam karya mereka. Melalui percakapan dan pertunjukan, mereka mengeksplor karma dari berkisah: bagaiamana cerita-cerita dari generasi sebelumnya berdampak pada kita dan yang mana yang harus kita pilih untuk diteruskan pada generasi selanjutnya?
