Join us for a special Last Post ceremony followed by this stunning dance performance.

Inspired by the memories of their beloved Grandmother, Avea'i Fui, and the research of Dr. John McLane, 1918 is a response to the devastating Spanish Influenza Pandemic of that same year which swept across the globe but had its worst effects in then New Zealand colony of Western Samoa. This devastating disease claimed the lives of almost a third of the total population of Sāmoa and became a catalyst for Sāmoa's resistance against the New Zealand colonial government. 2018 will mark the 100 year anniversary since this tragic and pivotal moment in Sāmoa’s history.

The Last Post at 5pm, outside by the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior
Audience will then be led inside the Hall of Memories to take their seats for the 1918 Dance performance (approx 45 minutes)

Free but booking is essential via the link above due to limited space.

Written and Directed by Tupe Lualua Savaia Lefaga, Luatuanu’u, Porirua
Choreographed by Andy Faiaoga Manono Tai, Luatuanu’u, Savaia, Lefaga, Hamilton
