Moana – The Rising of the Sea
25 June 2015, Viage Theatre, Brussels
For anyone who lives on an island, surrounded by the deep, beautiful yet dangerous sea, it is a cruel thought that one day the island will be swallowed by the ocean. For the inhabitants of the tropical Pacific islands, this is about to happen. Global climate change makes the sea rise and the land disappear. How does it feel when the sea forces you to abandon all that you hold dear? What does the threat from climate change mean to the island societies and the families who live on the islands of Oceania?
Written, directed, and perfomed by Pacific Islanders, Moana – The Rising of the Sea is an intense declaration of love to the natures and cultures of the Pacific, and a call for the world to think and act in these challenging times for Oceania. Through dance, song, music and film, 29 dancers and singers of the Oceania Dance Theatre and the Pasifika Voices choir (resident ensembles at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji) share emotions and experiences not so easily captured by the written and spoken words of reports and official meetings. The performance at the Viage Theatre on 25 June is the final show in a month-long European Tour that includes Bergen, St Andrews, Copenhagen, and the European Parliament in Brussels, with the presence of His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Ta'isi Efi, Head of State of Samoa .
A production by ECOPAS and the University of the South Pacific’s Oceania Centre for Arts, Culture and Pacific Studies
Funded by the European Union (ECOPAS Grant No 32098, FP7)
Performed by Oceania Dance Theatre & Pasifika Voices
The European Tour of Moana: The Rising of the Sea in 2015 is a collaborative effort by ECOPAS, the University of Bergen, the University of the South Pacific, the Bergen International Festival, the European Parliament, ESfO, and other sponsors in Europe.
