3rd Edition of the Dance Costume Exhibition
26 June 2018 - 13 January 2019
The Musée de Tahiti et des îles will again be highlighting ‘ori Tahiti (Tahitian dance) and the creativity of troupe directors through offering an exhibition of dance costumes that will run from July 25 to the end of the year. Traditionally, the costumes on display have been the award-winning regalia from recent Heiva i Tahiti festivals. The curator of the event has prom-ised a different exhibition this time, “outside the boundaries of chronological time and offering significant ensembles united by color and theme” or to feature the skills of a particular group. The oldest costumes on display within this framework date back to the 1930s.
