The HELLo Show – South Island Tour

For the first time in a long time we get to return to the south Island for a few shows.

The HELLo Show is our new work in progress, a developing idea of new songs and presentation, a push back against frantic apocalyptic fantasies without denying the mounting data of impending difficulty thats ahead of us. And a bit more raucous fun.

The poster has been designed specifically for this tour by the wonderful artist Stefanus Endry Pragusta from Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. Many thanks for the international collaboration! This is his statement on the work titled “TODAY”:

 
This work tells about my anxiety reading Indonesia now. The year 2018-2019 becomes the political year, because 2019 will pass elections to elect leaders for the people. Before the 2019 election, I already felt the chaos in every day. Today Indonesia has two camps that will [try to] seize power, unfortunately they have started a bad campaign at the beginning of the year… they are still fighting.
 
Same issues Communist, humanitarian, Slander, Racist, Religion, Intimidation, violence all played to become rulers. And I’m forced to see it all in TV, newspapers, and social media every day, it’s like terror from all walks of life for the future that seems to be like this too.
 
It seems that this mess is deliberately not maintained by a disorderly government or two camps. They will show off dirty wars in front of the community to show who the winner is, and I am forced to see the continuous cunning going on.

Mental chaos that is nurtured continuously for voracious power. They are busy concerned with how to [gain] power and then forget people who are victims of political greed elite. This is a big problem for the survival of our lives in the home and social environment.
