Direct from international arts festival 10 Days on the Island, en route to the Sydney Opera House, acclaimed Australian contemporary dance theatre ensemble Polytoxic comes to Canberra for two nights only with its tongue-in-cheek look at the oppression and the evolution of an island, TEUILA POSTCARDS.
In Polytoxic's remarkable fusion of traditional Polynesian and contemporary dance theatre, three tourists travel to a fantasy island, expecting an exotic, blissful, dreamlike holiday. What actually occurs is an episodic rollercoaster-ride through the stereotypes and surprises of Samoan culture, featuring historical missionary diary entries, an Elvis-style advert, a comedic floor show performance and a Samoan girl's experience of everyday life.
TEUILA POSTCARDS by Polytoxic 7, 8 April (8pm)
