World on Stage is organised every two years to celebrate our cultures through music, dance and song.
World on Stage 2021
World on Stage 2021 brought together over 196 performers from 17 groups and they were also able to watch the show, as well as the audience. The event is a strong affirmation for the groups and the audience to see their culture presented at such a high standard and presented with so much fun. The project has a mentoring and development element to assist groups who are performing for the first time to reach their potential by providing advice on stagecraft and performance skills.
Our sincere thanks to all performers, stallholders, stage helpers and all who willingly gave their time and expertise to World on Stage 2021. Also thank you to our funders, supporters and staff.
For those who could not come to this fantastic show, you can find some photos and introductions to our performers and their performances on the following pages and also on our Facebook page. Here is the wonderful review by Judith Lacy, editor of the Manawatu Guardian, in the NZ Herald.
World on Stage 2018
A great review of World on Stage …“we were treated to an amazing variety of items, with their roots in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, Europe or America, both North and South, all coming together in a colourful array, each celebrating their own traditions with obvious pride, passion and, above all, great joy. The infectious mix was inspirational – an uplifting occasion.”
