When & Where
PPIA (Indonesian Students Association in Australia) is a non-profit organisation aiming to unite all Indonesian students and at the same time contribute to the nation in terms of cultural recognition to the foreign community.
Proudly, this year PPIA Victoria presents the first theatrical performance called Panggung Merdeka, which adapts the life story of Soe Hok Gie as a renowned student activist from Indonesian post- independence period. PPIA Victoria feels that his story is fascinating and valuable to be retold. Soe Hok Gie’s courage to retain the spirit of patriotism among students has inspired us to create this performance.
Panggung Merdeka is dedicated to celebrate the Indonesian Independence Day.
