LKP Seni Pradapa Loka Bhakti (the LKP Seni) - Mission 1, 2 and 3
The school started as a local dance school to provide local young persons with a training of traditional Javanese dance. Since 2009, Agung Gunawan and Deasylina la xxx took over the school from the founder who is Deasylina's father, and gradually shifted its direction of the school from 'dance school for performance' to 'art education'.
This means that the focus of teaching has become much broader art subjects such as music, visual art, media art, contemporary dance, choreography and event management. Currently, the youngest student is 7 years old and the oldest is 18. Those 90 odd students have been offered to study broader subjects in the area of arts.
The directors believe that it is important for young artists to gain living experience through body, mind and spirit. In their teachings, they usually do not use much written or visual materials, but utilise rigorous, repetitive and creative practices via speaking dialogues. This helps build the basic yet critical sense of focus, listening, disciplines, responsibility and respect.
There are 5 grades to complete the art educ
With the strong focus on the performing arts education for young local dancers, the preservation and further exploration of Javanese cultural heritage in both dance and music, the experimental collaboration with multi-disciplinary artists in the spiritual & historical environment in Pacitan (Indonesia) and the collective engagement to run the space , Sampang Agung Centre for Performing Arts (the SACPA) exists to be an intersection for all to observe, challenge, share, mutually support and create new way of the arts practice.
It was founded by Mr Sukrman (the father of the co-director, Deaslina da Ary) in 1980 as the local dance school called "Sanggar Seni Pradapa Loka Bhakti". Then it changed its name to "LKP Seni Pradapa Loka Bhakti (the LKP Seni)" in 2013 under the new director and the co-director, Agung Gunawan and Deaslina da Ary with their philosophies and visions on arts and education for young artists.
Since then, the LKP Seni has been teaching much broader art subjects such as music, visual art, media art, contemporary dance, choreography and event management, and most importantly various aspects of life skills such as disciplines, how to respect, help, communicate with others through such arts education. The school continuously received numerous awards nationally, including one of the most prestigious awards in Indonesia at the high school level, the Award of the Best Choreographer in the High School Dance Festival in Surabaya 2015. Also, to explore and challenge going outside of the framework of Javanese traditional dance and music, Agung and Deaslina continuously invited multi-disciplinary artists inter/nationally.
In 2013, the stand alone project, Sampang Agung project (the S.A project) started as a site re-development project with the aim of establishing more spacious, innovative and transformative space which reflects on the history, culture, people and spirit of the native Javanese land in Pacitan.
