Veiqia21 by VOU Dance Fiji

New Farm, Brisbane Area

6 April 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$25 to AU$25

VEIQIA as it is traditionally known, was the custom commonly bestowed on young Fijian women coming of age. The process involves the traditional tattooing of young women celebrating and acknowledging the initial stages of a young girl undergoing physical changes before or while entering womanhood.

The piece will reflect the once forgotten ritualistic aspect that held utmost importance in the lives of Fijian women, focusing specifically on how proudly celebrated menstruation was for young women then, and how unnecessarily stigmatised it is in today’s society.

The Veiqia was symbolic, signifying strength, resilience, resourcefulness and creativity in the lives of these women. Today, the question that comes into play is ‘What is a woman’s right of passage?’
