WAKA our journeys our canoes

An amazing night of high energy performance, song, story and ritual from PNG, Indonesia, Thailand, Samoa and Kiribati cultures that share a history of sea travel in the Asia-Pacific region.

40 performers accompanied by life size and replica canoes present music and dance from our near neighbours representing their connections of trade and travel throughout Polynesia and south-east Asia.

Experience a multi cultural feast of dances and rituals with the Cultural Village of the NT as they portray the arduous journeys that took place for fishing or trading, for weddings or funerals or migration among these diverse cultures which all have traditional stories and performances that speak of heroism and skill on the sea. A celebration of culture and community.
