Groups to stage live dress rehearsal

19 June 2014

CULTURAL groups representing Solomon Islands in the upcoming 5th Melanesian Festival of Arts and Culture in Papua New Guinea will stage an exciting live dress rehearsal tomorrow at the National Museum Grounds.

The one day free show will include traditional and contemporary performances (dance and music), a theatre performance by the Stages of Change Theatre group, fashion show and exhibitions and demonstrations by our crafts men and women.

The show is expected to be a compact programme of artistic and cultural excitement starting at 10am to 6pm in the evening. 

Organized by the culture division of the ministry of culture and tourism, the show is organized to provide the public and leaders an opportunity to see what is going to be presented in PNG during the Melanesian Arts Festival.

Chief organizer and deputy director of culture, Dennis Marita said the dress rehearsal will also help his artistic team to oversee areas that needs to be improved in terms of the artistic aspects of performances and exhibitions.

He added that the show will also ensure that all participants are well prepared and to fulfill all expectations for their participation.

Cultural groups from Temotu, Malaita, Isabel, Rennell and Bellona, Makira and Guadalcanal will perform alongside traditional and contemporary music bands from Honiara.

Local artists and craftsmen and women will also showcase some of their unique talents through their art and craft works.

The public has been encouraged to attend this event which promises more excitement and fun this Friday.
