“The manuscript talked about the importance of partnership and commitment in building a country. If when a country is struck by a conflict, people put forward their egos, unwilling to take a middle ground, then (the country) will perish. The lesson is, when there is a problem, we should not put forward our egos. Try to find a middle ground,” Erna, who is also a UPKD FKIP UNS member, stated on Tuesday (28/9/2021).

First Collaborative Performance

The collaborative performance was the first to be held by the three associations in traditional arts. They hoped that this performance could strengthen the relationship and partnership among the student associations on the campus while developing members’ talents and creativity who were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Ema also explained that the opportunity to take place in the performance was opened for all members, and there was screening and casting for the dancers and players in the performance. “While for the managing committee, we shared evenly. Each association sent 20 people,” Ema added.

The performance took four months to prepare, and the rehearsal started on May 2021 but was stopped awhile due to the PPKM that was enforced on July 2021. At the end of the interview, Ema shared her expectation for the collaboration to be held in the following years with better quality.

“I also hope that even amid the pandemic, the performance and activities of student association could be implemented to develop member’s talents and creativity while preserving the culture,” Ema concluded. Humas UNS
