Nafanua, The War Goddess is a moving cultural experience synthesising hospitality, theatre and dance.

A sumptuous five-course banquet designed by head chef Wallace Mua Frost will be coupled with contemporary Pasifika dance-theatre woven in-between courses in an event that follows hot on the heels of last year’s sold-out Takurua - Battle of the Brothers.

This cultural extravaganza combines fine dining, thrilling dance theatre, spectacular costumes and authentic cultural stories and comedy from the Samoan fale aitu tradition.

With six performances over two weeks, this neo-Pasifika feast will be served in the Aotea Centre's Hunua Rooms and is perfect for friends, families, and corporate hospitality.

Drawing inspiration from Māori hākari and Pasifika feasting rituals, Takurua welcomes you to join a celebration of indigenous practices in food preparation, dance, feasting and theatrical storytelling.

The vision of artistic Director Tausani Simei-Papali'I, Nafanua, The War Goddess is brought to life by Tala Pasifika Productions and renowned Pasifika women's dance collective Ura Tabu.

Nafanua – the War Goddess breathes life into the ancient legend of one of the Pacific's most revered heroines – the warrior Queen Nafanua whose prowess in battle brought peace to Samoa’s warring villages and won her a place in the pantheon of Pasifika gods and goddesses.
