    Asia TOPA 2017: Lukautim Solwara (look out for the ocean)


    Smoke rises. Song welcomes. Bodies are adorned. Enter a space carrying culture, ceremony and regalia of our longest living cultures.



    Next Wave brings together acclaimed Samoan/Aotearoa (New Zealand) artist Rosanna Raymond with Maori, Pasifika and Aboriginal collaborators in Lukautim Solwara (look out for the ocean), a one-night-only event of performance, art and adornment.



    Immerse yourself in the mana (power and honour) of visual artists, performers and choreographers as they intensively articulate, fabricate and actiVAte an explosive new cross-disciplinary experience, especially for Asia TOPA.



    “One of the uncontested showstoppers.”

    Artforum on Rosanna Raymond’s SaVAge K’lub at APT8.
