Sabukjanur Arts aims to improve the Javanese performing arts tradition and contemporary Indonesian art by creating artistic performances while maintaining the value of Indonesia’s cultural roots, and of course, the spirit of Reyog Ponorogo which should always be the most important part of every creation.


Sabukjanur is the name of a place in the village of Sumoroto Ponorogo with the trusted local community (Ponorogo) in the petilasan kingdom of Bantarangin (Reyog Ponorogo). Every year, especially in the month of Suro (Javanese calendar), this place is visited by adherents of the spiritual. This land is owned by Mbah Kusni, a grandfather of Wisnu HP.

In 2007, Wisnu HP changed this place’s name to Sabukjanur.

Sabukjanur Arts is a place for open art cooperation among people from different backgrounds and disciplines, such as choreographers, dancers, actors, musicians, wayang puppeteers, visual artists, and designers.
