Fiji is multi-culturally diverse to the extent that modern Fiji embraces a fusion cuisine, a shift in lingo and culture, and the birth of contemporary dances. A group responsible for recreating most of Fiji’s cultural dances and adapting folklore or stories into performative art is the Vou Hub Fiji-a performance art theatre based in Nadi. Trying to experience a traditional dance first-hand can be rare as most dances are hardly performed outside cultural occasions unless requested at festivals and public ceremonies. So, if you do get a chance to see a Vou performative dance in live action, savour every moment because that is as good and as vibrant as it’s going to get.

What is Vou Hub Fiji?

Located on-route to Denarau Island, this performing art theatre intrigues both locals and tourists alike. The group performs in a large retractable tent situated on Denarau Road in Nadi, at Maqalevu. According to Vou Hub director, Sachiko Soro, the Hub is a Fijian artist-owned and operated avenue where you can see high-quality performing arts, as it’s the heart of arts. 

Vou, pronounced ‘Voh-ooh’ means ‘new’ in the i-taukei indigenous language. The performing arts theatre first opened its doors in 2019 and aims to give their audience a memorable and magical experience to take with them when they return home. This experience is an array of traditional, modern, and contemporary dance or a mixture of the former two.

Aside from the theatre, the group performs at weddings, events and festivals; in fact, a team of Vou dancers have been given the honour of participating in the 2023 Glastonbury festival that will be held in June in Somerset, England.


Performers of Vou Hub Fiji

The inclusivity of Vou performers is to be commended, as it ranges the cultural diversity of Fijians. Upon watching their practice performances online, aside from performing folklores in dance-form, it must be noted that these talented individuals collectively gather ideas and perform new dances from scratch, changing them and incorporating new moves as they progress further.

The recruitment process for dancers, of whom all are locals, are done through free community performances and workshops, which help in discovering talented individuals. These individuals are then offered scholarships sponsored by the European Union to study at the Conservatorium of Dance in Nadi.
