INSTUDIO~ Ori Tahiti workshop
Our culture is alive, it is in us and it is our mission to share it abroad and to future generations.
In this 2.5 hours long workshop you’ll be completely immersed in Tahitian culture. Hinatea (live from Tahiti) will guide us through the understanding of the cultural concepts lying under the lyrics of a beautiful tahitian song. Marine will then teach us graceful and meaningful movements in a choreography to interpret this song.
