LOOP 11 OUT NOW!

On a newstand near you this week...

***********

Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Malo e Lelei, Kia Orana, Ni Sa Bula, Fakaalofa Atu, Malo Ni, Halo Olaketas and welcome to the September/November 2000 issue of LOOP.

************

Why the multilingual greeting?

This issue we bring you POLIFUSION.

On the eve of the Eighth South Pacific Festival of Arts we consider Pacific art, identity, world-view and the way forward: morphing cultures and new expressions by loud minorities fusing forms and communicating with a global audience.

With New Zealand at the centre of this creative surge, we consider Niu Directions In Pasifika Art, pictorially profile the 1996 Pacific Festival of Arts in Samoa, and converse with musicians King Kapisi, Te Kupu and Nuvonesia, MAU Dance Theatre director Lemi Ponifasio, playwright Toa Fraser, and artists Ela To'omaga and Shigeyuki Kihara Tualeniuasina.

It's all global from there on in. We trek the world looking at barbers; provide Capital City fashion shoots from London and Wellington; see how our DJs got on at the Red Bull DJ academy in Dublin; glimpse the future in Osaka, Japan; find how former Californian physicist Millennium Twain is joining the race into Space from Hamilton Airport; visit the City Gallery's Parihaka exhibition; and offer an extract from the new novel by Witi Ihimaera, Just for startersŠ

Then there's the LOOP CD and CDrom.

Our latest CD brings you great new music from 100% New Zealand talent: Toni Huata, Te Kupu, DLT, LRS, K.A.O.S, Rhian Sheehan, Micronism and Pitch Black.

And as if that's not enough, your computer is waiting to display our CDrom content: Te Kupu's Solidarity doco shot in the USA and his E Tu music video; Lemi Ponifasio's dance production Boneflute Ivi Ivi; fresh beats from Nuvonesia; the Smokefree Pacific beats finals; animation; a huge range of culture cuts; more music videos, movie trailers, game demos and extra fashion and articles - linked to our website http://loop-e.com.
