A barefoot trek through tropical Samoa
Polynesia: imagine a lush, green landscape, turquoise water and white beaches dotted with bronzed, curvaceous women who wear coconut shell bikinis. Think it all sounds too good to be true? Well ... it is.
Acclaimed Australian contemporary dance-theatre ensemble Polytoxic unveils the cultural reality of Polynesia with an episodic ride of postcard-like vignettes through the past and present.
"A contemporary cabaret of piss take, wicked comedy, theatre and dance ... the narrative is clever, the lines are funny ... enjoyable and irreverent." ARTS HUB
Teuila Postcards premiered in March 2006 at Brisbane Powerhouse's Pasifika Festival, and in 2009 toured nationally with Kultour, and internationally to Vanuatu and Harbourfront Centre, Toronto.
"Teuila Postcards beautifully seams the kitsch with the intellectual, the erotic/exotic fantasy with the real and mundane, colonial history with retro pop." SCENE MAGAZINE
