Tabula Rasa at Hai Day

More than 20,000 people flocked Parkir Timur Senayan on the 20th of October, 2013. They were all there for the second Hai Day, which was celebrating Eco Youth that year. Many of its visitors, mainly High School students, stayed energetic even though they were constantly blazed by harsh sunlight throughout the day. Several celebrated musicians performed to full crowds that day, including Endah N Rhesa, Raisa and Maliq & D’Essentials. Apart from those big names, there were many performances all over the venue, be it cheerleading or breakdancing, and also sports games such as futsal or skateboarding.

 

Theatre Area, the only indoor venue at the festival, was where the Tabula Rasa team presented about the film to the crowd. Even before the show started, many of them had already waited excitedly. When the show finally rolled, the venue was instantly packed.

 

 

 

In attendance were producer Sheila Timothy, director Adriyanto Dewo, writer Tumpal Tampubolon, culinary advisor Reno Andam Suri, and associate producer Vino G. Bastian. After giving a brief overview about Tabula Rasa, the audience was given the chance to ask questions to all the panelists. Some of those were given merchandises—some got packs of rendang courtesy of Uni Farah, some got Rendang Traveler books, some got Tabula Rasa t-shirts.

 

 

In addition to the Q&A session, Vino dared the crowd to come up on stage and enact some impromptu scenes—an open casting call for all. Several answered the dare and performed animatedly on stage.

 

 

 

The event was a merry hour for the five panelists and the audience alike. Hope to see a crowd as excited as this one next time!
