A vibrant touring stage-show is set to capture the exciting essence of ancient and modern cultures.
It’s called Living Legends, and a panorama of Latin American, Native American, and Polynesian song and dance, will erupt on the Regent on Broadway stage when the US based production arrives on Tuesday May 3.
The performance combines a dynamic repertoire of Native American choreography with the colour and vitality of Polynesian and Latin American dance styles.
Traditions come to life as talented descendants and inheritors of these cultures weave together authentic choreography, intricate costumes and heartpounding music into one captivating show. The lavish costumes and the intricate choreography are authentic representations of the cultures that are being showcased.
The Living Legends Seasons programme presents a kaleidoscope of culture, with dances and songs from Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Fiji, Hawaii, Guatemala, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay, Samoa, Tahiti, Tonga and the United States.
Run by the department of dance at Brigham Young University in Hawaii, the Living Legends company has 44 members.
Tickets for the 7pm performance on Tuesday are through TicketDirect. As a bonus, the Living Legends cast plan to spend the day in workshops with Palmerston North UCOL performing arts students.
A Latin blast of colour, rhythm and style is part of the Living Legends experience in the Regent on Broadway next Tuesday night.
