„Tofa Si O’u Tina – Farewell to my Mother“
Ceremonial Samoan Dance Performance
With Raymond and Ufitia Sagapolutele, Lyncia Muller and Natalia Ioane (Auckland, New Zealand)
Sunday, 25th August, 5pm
This ceremonial dance performance expresses respect for the ancestors and adresses the struggle for cultural identity as Pacific Islander in the diaspora. At the same time, it pays tribute to Raymond and Ufitia Sagapolutele’s mother. The images of her dancing (“Siva Samoa”), on show in the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, were taken shortly before she passed away. For this ceremonial farewell and expression of respect for her mother, Ufitia Sagapolutele has interpreted a traditional Siva Samoa with a contemporary choreography. In this way, the legacy of their mother is artistically continued by her children.
