A beautifully crafted, rich interweaving of siva Samoa and contemporary dance, combining song, live drumming, archival footage and dramatic installation, 1918 is that rare gift: an opportunity for genuine, cross-cultural education.

The devastating impact of the global Spanish influenza pandemic in Samoa in 1918, in which a quarter of the population died, is the focus of this profound, internationally lauded dance-theatre work by Le Moana – written by Tupe Lualua; choreographed by Andy Faiaoga.

For the centennial anniversary of this tragic, pivotal event, which became a catalyst for resistance against the NZ colonial government and ultimately led to Samoa’s independence, world-renowned theatre maker, Nina Nawalowalo (The White Guitar), has also come on board.

It’s a luminous, deeply moving performance that’s been met from Wellington to San Diego, from Savai’i to Upolu, with rapturous applause.
