Showcasing talent in the USA, an opportunity for Pacific artists

March 6, 2019 1:11 pm

Showcasing Pacific talent in the United States and getting a foot in the door to Hollywood is something that USP’s Igelese Ete is more than aware of.

With work now beginning for another US show of ‘Malaga, the Journey’ production, USP’s Head of Performing Arts is hoping to capitalize on the array of regional talent.

Ete says the ability to produce exhibitions abroad like ‘Malaga the Journey’ accords Pacific performers an avenue to expose their talents to a wider audience.

And with musical credits in major blockbuster movies, Ete knows all too well what to look out for.

“For Moana, for us to get together with them was a huge, huge sort of impact that we got. So for me its building platforms and this Hollywood platform is a huge one. Obviously if you get your foot on the stage there, you making it through. And there’s an opportunity that we bring investors, bring producers, directors to see our amazing young people and give them an opportunity.”

‘Malaga the Journey’ is scheduled to exhibit in Los Angeles in June.

For the production crew, Ete says he’s looking at 10 singers from the Solomon Islands and 10 from Fiji’s Oceania group.
