Nahora Ioane and Tanu Gago

Protection is a collaboration between FAFSWAG artists Nahora Ioane and Tanu Gago. The work is a performance dedicated to the LGBTQIA+ community of Rarotonga. Created in response to the criminalisation of homosexuality in the Cook Islands where Nahora Ioane is native to, Ioane says; “This war dance of protection is dedicated to my LGBTQIA+ community of Rarotonga, experiencing discrimination by their government. We stand in solidarity with you”.
