BLEACH* VOU AT PALM BEACH
Presented By Bleach* Festival And Festival 2018 And Wow — Women Of The World Commonwealth
From our neighbours across the Coral Sea comes an explosive Pacific experience that transports audiences to the island paradise of Fiji.
As a collective of urban Fijian artists, VOU blends the old and new, the traditional and contemporary with a unique signature style that has seen them receive international acclaim.
VOU (meaning ‘new’ in Fijian) is the most widely-toured contemporary Pacific-based dance company, having performed across the world including Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Singapore, China, USA and Canada.
Passionate about using their craft as a powerful means to create awareness of current issues of environmental sustainability, gender equality, and climate change, VOU brings to Bleach* Festival a specially created site-specific response to the beautiful natural environment of the city’s coastline.
Based on a dance film work originally presented at COP21 United Nations Climate Change Conference 2015, VOU dance artists, with choreographer Navi Fong, will be transforming the piece into a live evocative beach performance that invites us to consider the world’s shaking grounds and swelling seas. Do we sink or do we swim?
