Between 1906 and 1908 when the Balinese were being subjugated by the Dutch, a mass ritual suicide (Puputan) lead by the Kings of Bali happened in preference to facing the humiliation of surrender.
As a consequence, the Dutch turned protectors of the Balinese culture and endeavored to preserve it in addition to their initial modernization role. Efforts were made at preserving Bali and making it a “living museum” of classical culture, and in 1914, Bali was opened to tourism.
Theses events shaped Balinese modern history, the very harshness of the military invasions thus paradoxically triggered an international uproar which contributed to the preservation of Bali’s culture, to make the island one of the most popular tourist destinations today.

What if this mass ritual suicide did not happened?
“Alternates” (Bergantian) is an Indonesian uchronia and depicts two dancers in this alternative timeline. It is a VR experience about things that don’t change and things that could have changed.
