Video excerpts of recordings taken from one of the most popular Mendu theatre performances in Natuna, the episode in which the heroine Siti Mahdewi has an evil spell cast on her that transforms her into a White Elephant. It was staged by an all-male cast at night beginning around 8pm and finishing after midnight, inside a traditional stage frame with mystical Pulai tree planted at the front, located in Ceruk village, near the capital of Natuna, Ranai. 0.00-1.54 Scene: The hero Dewa Mendu sings and dances a mantra around a White Elephant attempting to break the spell, with his brother Angkaran Dewa comically warning Dewa Mendu of the potential danger in carrying out such magic. 1.55-3.38 When Dewa Mendu's mantra succeeds in lifting the spell, the White Elephant sheds its elephant skin to reveal princess Siti Mahdewi in exile from the kingdom ruled by her father, King Langakdura.

Mixture of singing by Siti Mahdewi and comic dialogue between the brothers. 3.39-5.49 As the three characters attempt to find their way through the jungle to the kingdom of King Langkadura, they meet three of the king's masked clown servants chopping wood for the palace kitchen. 5.50-9.53 Set in the king's meeting hall, King Langkadura and his three ministers discuss the lay of the land. The clowns arrive with the three travellers. The king is informed, and the clowns are allowed to enter the meeting hall to address the king and to bring in the travellers including his long-lost daughter, Siti Mahdewi, now no longer an elephant. In a playful mood, the clown servants wait outside, while the king expresses his joy in song. 9.54-10.59 The king meets with Dewa Mendu and his brother, expresses his gratitude, asks him to marry his daughter Siti Mahdewi and to succeed him as king. 11.00-11.57 Joget dance between two female characters and males invited from the audience, to mark the end of the evening.

Developed by Monash University and published in collaboration with ACHPER, Health and Physical Education: The Five Propositions is a set of five cards that can be used by teachers, educators and university students as a tool to help support their emerging understandings of the five propositions of the new Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education.The five proposition cards break down each proposition into a sharp, succinct definition informed by contemporary research. Each proposition is supported by a set of strategic questions deliberately crafted to clarify understandings of each proposition and then challenge deeper thinking about how they might play out in schools and classrooms.Designed with frontline time compressed practitioners in mind, the questions are informed by the experience of four Monash University academics grappling with meaning yet determined to embed the propositions in their own work.Each card looks at one proposition (focus on educative purposes; take a strengths-based approach; value movement; develop health literacy; and include a critical inquiry approach) and contains a series of questions to guide users whilst reading curriculum documents, during programme/unit/course reviews or during the scope and sequence/programme design process in schools and at universities.

Punishment is a historical universal; the meting out of death and torture has reflected social morality since time immemorial. Through books, broadsides and pamphlets, the history of printed images has captured our fascination with macabre and brutal scenes of torture, execution, and punishment. Librarian Daniel Wee will take you on an illustrated journey through the history of punishment.

This is the first ever film produced on the history of the traditional and contemporary performing arts of Indonesia’s Riau Islands’ province, specifically tracing the so-far little-known history of the violin (called biola in Indonesian language) and its essential place in the music, dance and theatre of the Islands. It brings together original footage of performances and interviews with local musicians and artists, and information from a handful of international academics currently researching the Riau Islands’ performing arts. The original footage of the film was taken largely by Karen Kartomi Thomas with some excerpts kindly provided from other researchers. The making of the film would not have been possible without the direction, knowledge and skills of many experts including film editor and ethnomusicologist, Dr. Salva Rossano, and producer, ethnomusicologist, and advisor to the contents of the film, Prof. M. Kartomi. This item is referenced in Margaret Kartomi (ed), Performing the Arts of Indonesia: Malay Identity and Politics in the Music, Dance and Theatre of the Riau Islands, Copenhagen: Nias Press, 2019.
