    Explore history and witness the creation of life in this powerful double bill by Thomas Fonua (Australian Dance Theatre) and Vivian Hosking-Aue (Short & Sweet Dance Supreme winner 2014)


    Malaga is a dynamic new work choreographed by Thomas Fonua and featuring performers from Australian Dance Theatre. Tracing back to the 19th century when Samoan men, women and children toured Germany as part of “human zoos” or ‘Volkershau”. This excerpt draws from themes such as exhibition, captivity and exoticism. Exploring our history and identifying habits we have in the present, placing our culture up for sale.
