Welcome to Auntie’s Fiafia Night!
Step inside our home….. Take off your shoes…. Give your Aunty a hug hello…. take a seat and mili mili your hands ready to clap for Auntie’s Fiafia Night!
Casus Circus brings its internationally renowned modern human circus and combines with the ancient and rich cultures of the pacific.
Be enthralled by the gravity defying feats of Casus acrobats as they roll and tumble into the ocean of Pacific song and dance - calm, graceful, swaying.
Have your breath taken away as the aerialist soars high above a pacific island performance feast giving you a taste to the wider pacific - from the traditional Samoan chants and slap dance the ‘Sasa’ and ‘fa’ataupati’ to the traditional fire dance ‘Siva Afi’ and ancient pasifika urban legend stories. Be absorbed by the rhythms of original and ancient dance with the hula as it spins with the hula hoop performer.
Listen closely to the stories of old as they move you to bend and release.
Auntie’s Fiafia Night has been woven together by Samoan man and Matilda award winning Director Natano Faanana
Presented by Brisbane Festival, Casus Circus, Cluster Arts, & District Studios.
