Fijian performance artist Stelly G explores the fibres that make her, as she mines diasporic history in search of answers to cultural norms, family ties, expectations and the looming shadow of taboo. An artist in search of deliverance, navigating her genealogical roots in the waters of the deepest ocean. This performance contains strong language.
Performed by Stelly G and Tanumi
Sereima Adimate 'Stelly G' is a Gadigal-based Fijian performance artist with an anti-colonial practise bringing to the forefront the Pacific-diaspora experience. Stelly interrogates the colonial structures that have invited shame and forced us to neglect selflove, communal care and understanding. “I love my people, I love myself and I am committed to the evolution of returning to a past that meets the future”. Stelly has performed as a solo and collaborative artist in works that have showcased across many established institutions and galleries and is currently working on a production with BlackBirds Creative Arts for PACT Centre for Emerging Artists, Sydney.
Tanumi is a storyteller (aka the shaRman). He uses his music, dance and art to take everyone on a journey. A multidisciplinary artist, Tanumi fuses music from all times and genres to create his sound. Tribal and futuristic, a jungle boi at heart. Expect jaw dropping moments as Tanumi burns up the stage with his Fiji Fire!
