Tahiti Ora: English Version
By

Rating
The Tahiti Ora Ballet, under the expert leadership of Tumata Robinson, assisted by manager Roland Garrigou, are a dance troupe whose male and female members, to the beat of stunning Polynesian percussions and distinctive harmonies, featuring dazzling costumes and adornments worthy of the greatest royal enthronements, present us with sumptuous tableaux vivants. Their world-famous shows are an invitation to take a journey, an initiation to an art de vivre, the teaching of a philosophy... "Ora" in Tahitian means "Life," a life infused with beauty, sweetness and generosity. Winner of the 129th and 134th renowned Heiva I Tahiti South Pacific Dance Festival - one of the oldest in the world, boasting one hundred and thirty years of existence - the Tahiti Ora Ballet earned multiple prestigious awards, such as Best Dance Troupe, Best Costumes, Best Orchestra or best Solo Dancers. The bewitching sensuality oozing from vahines (female dancers) contrasting with the sheer power of ancient-style tattooed male dancers, is magically staged and leaves a strong impression on the audience. This publication shortly presents Tumata's background and some of the best pictures of her shows. The show must go on; and so must Tahiti Ora adventure...

About the Author

Tumata is the third daughter of William Albert Robinson, the famous navigator and writer. She grew up in Paea, in the family home. As her father was himself attracted by the grace of Ori Tahiti, he considered that Polynesian dancing was an excellent way to integrate his daughters into their country and culture. She started dancing at the age of 7 with famous dancer Paulina. Learning was difficult. It took some hard work and a lot of practice before she could join the troupe. When she was 10, Tumata danced in major hotels such as Hotel Tahiti. It was a way to share with others but also to move outside the family circle as described in her book Comme deux navires qui se croisent dans la nuit. (Like two ships that pass in the night.)
