The Festival is the living heart of Pasifika Styles – a celebration of contemporary drama, comedy, dance and visual theatre from the South Pacific.
Performance has been a central element in the oral traditions of the South Pacific for hundreds of years. Maori and Pacific Islanders have used and adopted European forms of theatre to voice issues of their culture and express their unique experiences.
Fusing ancient tradition with modern cosmopolitanism, Polynesian artists today create some of New Zealand’s most thrilling and innovative performances. For the first time ever in the UK, the Pasifika Styles Festival gives you the chance to see their work on your doorstep.
Discover the magic world of Pacific and Maori performing arts, and join us for a week of exciting shows and activities.
Pasifika Styles Performing Arts festival is produced by Far Cry Ltd., London, in association with the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
