The aim was to engage Indonesian performers in a process drawn from both contemporary and traditional arts practice, using the stories of the 1001 Nights as inspiration. The actors were selected from students and alumni of IKJ, as well as independent performers in Jakarta and the wider Jalarta area. 60 actors began the process in August 2007. and 20 were chosen in November 2007 to create a public showing.
