The Queen of Luwuq Kingdom finally gave birth to her golden twin children. The first son, named Sawerigading, was destined to be king and a great knight. The second one, his twin sister, named We Tenriabeng, was born to be a priest with revelations.
However, there was an oracle that one day, they would be married and destroyed the kingdom. So, both of them were separated. We Tenriabeng was raised in a kind of secret room beside the palace. Meanwhile, Sawerigading was ordered to explore around the world through the ocean.
One day, Sawerigeding secretly met his twin sister and fell in love with her then. However, the King did not agree with it at all. Moreover, We Tenriabeng told her twin brother that there was a beautiful princess named We Cudaiq who looked like her in China. Also, one day they would be married. So, Sawerigading went to China and took her to be his wife.
Unfortunately, that pampered and arrogant princess decided to shut herself alone in her room. When she gave birth to her son, she asked her servants to bring him to the dogs. Shortly after, Sawerigading came to save his son, named I La Galigo, and then left China.
Around 13th to 15th centuries, this story recorded into the poetry in old Bugis language. Consist of five poems, the Bugis called it as Sureq Galigo which was a story of Bugis origin myth that was perpetuated through a verbal tradition and old scripts.

Directed by Robert Wilson, this performance always has many international praises since its first performance in 2003. Therefore, you have to watch this greatest performance in July 2019.
