Meet Fonnyta Amran.

Meet Fonnyta Amran, a full member of the Arts and Culture Network and Glasgow-based Indonesian theatre-maker, director, producer, and actor.

Her artistic journey is marked by a commitment to pushing societal boundaries and challenging conservative mindsets through the transformative power of theatre. With a passion for realistic scripts with dark undertones, Fonnyta is driven by a desire to showcase diverse perspectives in Indonesian society.

Mark had the pleasure of meeting Fonnyta, exploring her website, which you can view here, playing The Arts and Culture Hot Top 10 and the This or That game. Watch the video above or listen to the audio version on SoundCloud.

Her approach to theatre is characterised by the fusion of various art forms, including dance, movement, poetry, installation art, painting, and film/digital projection. This interdisciplinary collaboration aims to create immersive experiences that enrich the audience's understanding and encourage innovation.

As an assistant director, Fonnyta has contributed to productions such as "The Taming of the Shrew" and "The Great Replacement." As co-director, Fonnyta has credits include "Measure for Measure" by William Shakespeare (The Globe Theatre, London, UK) and Eugene O’Neil  (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, UK).

Her directing portfolio doesn’t stop here, spanning both Indonesia and the UK, featuring notable productions like "West Side Story," "Blackbird" by David Harrower, and Stephen Sondheim’s "Company."

Her co-director roles in the UK include classics like "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Knives in Hens," showcasing her versatility in tackling a range of theatrical genres.

In 2019, she directed a Broadway licensed production of "Company - The Musical Comedy" to highlight female creative talents in Indonesian modern theatre. Noteworthy among her achievements is the 2018 direction of the internationally licensed activism play "Blackbird" as part of the 16 Film Festival, raising awareness against gender-based violence.

In addition to her directorial achievements, Fonnyta is a board member of the Jakarta Performing Arts Community and the Founder of the Breaking Barriers Initiative - a space to empower Indonesian females and marginalised artists.

She also founded SDGPIPE, a youth change-making incubation program, reflecting her commitment to nurturing the next generation of creative minds.

As well as that, her role as a consultant at Luce Consultancy exhibits her dedication to developing tailor-made strategies for increased organisational influence and impact in the performing arts industry.

Fonnyta's journey in the world of theatre is a testament to her advocacy for cross-cultural understanding, empathy, and the transformative potential of the performing arts. Her multifaceted roles, from director to founder and advocate, underscore her dedication to going above and beyond cultural boundaries.
