• BRINGING PACIFIC DANCE TO THE WORLD

VOU

Energy! Spirit! Mana!

Our Story

VOU is Fiji’s leading dance company and school delivering an explosive and vibrant Pacific experience which transports the audience to Fiji – an island rich in ancient stories, tradition and culture.

Through the media of live music and dance, VOU (meaning new in Fijian), is the creative blending of old and new, traditional and contemporary. VOU delivers traditional story-telling through the media of contemporary dance and music showcasing VOU’s unique signature.

VOU represents the ethnically-diverse Fijian culture and the dancers have been involved in VOU research to discover more about their heritage and roots. VOU runs a research program to help dancers from Suva go to their traditional lands to learn their own unique chants and dances to keep them alive in modern society.

As well as performing hundreds of shows across Fiji, VOU has also performed at events and festivals as far and wide as Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, USA, Canada and China, including representing Fiji in contemporary dance for the 4th and 5th Melanesian Festival in New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea and the 11th Festival of Pacific Arts 2012 in the Solomon Islands.

Complementing these performances and tours, VOU performs at local community events and schools to raise awareness of dance and music in Fiji.

In 2011 VOU started a music and dance school, to offer access to affordable arts education to artistically inclined youth. The School was immediately successful going from 40 students enrolled in our first term to over 250 students a term in just over a year. VOU has now opened a second branch of the VOU School in Nadi. VOU believes in creating sustainable alternative career paths for Fijian youth through the arts.

Our Story

VOU was founded in 2007 primarily as a contemporary Pacific dance company. Since its inception, VOU has spread its creative wings and branched out into the fields of Music, Fashion and Film with their sound, style and scenes being seen far and wide.
