The island culture has been rattled, and its proud people have been unnerved. Without choice, they must now journey to the new world.
A dynamic youth musical that celebrates Pacific Island culture with dignity, creativity and an irrepressible sense of fun, Paradise – The Musical explores the cultural clashes between the South Pacific Islands and the Western world.
An initial work-in-development showing was presented at the 2005 2high Festival in the Powerhouse, Brisbane. The first production was staged at the Brisbane Festival in 2007.
This is an over-view of a six-week unit on Polynesian culture and drama, based on Paradise. The material was developed by teaching artist, Narelle Richards and Inz Manu-Sione from Breakthrough and offers a range of activities exploring Polynesian culture, character development and script work.
