Faovale Imperium

National Museum of Scotland

Join New Zealand Samoan/Welsh comedian James Nokise and DJ Don Luchito for a funny and thought-provoking exploration of the National Museum of Scotland’s Pacific collections, in the Facing the Sea Gallery.

This free, on-gallery event brings an irreverent historical perspective, poetry of Oceania and dynamic soundscapes into the heart of the Museum. The performance shares a counter-narrative to the epic voyages of Captain James Cook, as he encounters the many cultures of the Pacific spreading ‘enlightenment’ to a people who lived in ecologically sustainable structures and knew how to sail without compasses…

This event is free, with sign-up necessary on the day of event. Strictly limited spaces available.

Supported by the British Council’s Connections Through Culture grant programme and Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
