Pacific Dance Festival 2017 Call for Expressions of Interest

Pacific Dance NZ invites Expressions of Interest from dancers and choreographers who wish to take part in the Pacific Dance Festival 2017 in Auckland, a new and unique art event in Aotearoa.

The festival is an exciting opportunity to be part of a unique dance event showcasing and promoting contemporary Pacific dance in Aotearoa.

The inaugural Pacific Dance Festival was launched in June 2016 at the Mangere Arts Centre where exceptional performers presented a range of innovative dance works – including works from: Tupua Tigafua, Leki Bourke, Hadleigh Pouesi, Jahra Wasasala, Nikki Upoko, Katerina Fatupaito with special guest performance by Julia Mage'au Gray and Le Moana.
