Born out of the desire to take Polyfest, So’otaga and Autalavou to the next level, Samoa Dance Group Aotearoa presents “We Are Samoa”, a 90-minute showcase of the beauty of Samoan traditional folk dance and song. Be amazed and awed as they perform various Samoan cultural dances to live singing and instrumentation with solo performances by the fabulous Nyssa Colins. Be transported through history and time as they unwrap some of the unique gifts and treasures of the Samoan culture which have defined and shaped it to this day including the Ava ceremony and the story of the Tatau. Be carried away by the precision, the artistry, the passion, the flare and the excitement of a stellar performance which will have you on the edge of your seat for every moment. These shows are SDGA’s only performances in New Zealand before they take to the international stage performing in New Caledonia in October 2018 and beyond in 2019. For 3 nights only, don’t miss out.
