ATALI'I O LE CREZENT

by Villa Lemanu
 

This coming of age dance theatre show is a response to the displacement of our communities through gentrification. 

It is centred around Villa's fears of seeing his family leave the house that he grew up in in Otara and the loss of the village community that they've been a part of for several decades.  What other than memories will we have after being "forced out"?
