‘Ori Tahiti Singapore and School of Hawaiian Hula Singaporehttps://goo.gl/forms/96HDUUU4rQbCpjGh2
Discover the story behind Polynesia and the way Tahitians and Hawaiians have passed down their stories through the power of dance. On 9 December 2018, ‘Ori Tahiti Singapore and Ka Pa Hula Ka Lei Maile Hi’ilani come together for the very first time to present “Te Tau’rea”, the transmission of culture.
Both ‘Ori Tahiti and Hawaiian hula are traditional dances that share one similarity: these are historic artforms that tell the stories of the people through music and movement. However, the new Polynesian generation will forget all these traditions if they are not preserved. Although the Internet and education have broadened our horizons, it has impacted the transmission of Polynesia’s languages and cultural identity. For one magical night, be transported as we tell you stories that have been passed down from generations. Celebrate with us as we show you our way of passing down these traditions to the next generation.
