POSTPONED!!! Are We Stronger Than Winston? @ The PlayHouse, Selborne St, Suva
Sep 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

This is the production which took Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm with 4 star reviews and sell out shows.

‘Fiji is my home, my land… my interconnected relationship of unconditional love and protection. But my land is disappearing. When it is gone, I am gone. But I refuse to die; I will fight! I am reclaiming ownership of my existence – as a people and a land. Fighting to save the land of my birth!’. A compelling and intimate expression of how Fijians feel about climate change, the devastating impacts it is having on the Pacific Islands and their fight for survival!’

VOU at Tempo Dance Festival performing VU
Oct 8 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

A striking new dance production by VOU Dance Fiji, VU (meaning ancient god) is a taboo movement response to the ancestral protectors from the heathen past of Fiji.

Our VU is steadfast with and against us. Reminiscing on the sacred offerings we possess, each dancer’s VU travels through their mind and soul to relinquish the reality of protection and sacrifices made to nourish the spirits with which we share the same blood. We are walking bloody steps in its feet. We are forcefully grounded by its heavenly/deadly testimonies. We vigorously devour the helpless soul of our mother’s village. We imitate our forefathers who worshipped the dirt. We are punished endlessly by its love.

Witness a unique fusion of contemporary Fijian dance, choreographed by award-winning choreographer Vivian Aue.

VU, will you provide for us or make us suffer?
