During the period between the year of 1999 to 2012, Melati Suryodarmo travelled to various performance art festivals and events run by independent artists or organizations, such as in Odense, Weimar, Cologne, Lublin, Kirschau, Bergen, Szezin, Prague, Mexico City, Boston, Toronto, Sydney, Bangkok, Hongkong, Mandalay, Cardiff, and many other places but not least, Singapore. She often packed all the objects, materials, and costumes she used for her performances within one baggage.

And I....”, “Feathers Fell from Silence” and others.
