Hinatea Colombani

Hinatea Colombani was born in 1985 in Papeʻete and made her first steps in ʻOri Tahiti with Makau Foster-Delculvellerie. At 13, she joins the troupe “TOA REVA” where she met Mehiti Hart, who taught her the basics of stage performance. In 2006, Hinatea moved to France for her studies. Longing her fenua, she joined a fresh dance troupe with fellow students. In 2008, she came back to the island and worked with Makau as an assistant and, upon advice from her she decided to open her own school of ʻOri Tahiti - Matehaunui - and make it a living for herself. Hinatea always thought about creating a cultural center, but in 2008, when she launched her dance school, she didn’t have the material nor human resources required to help her in a project combining so many activities. In 2015 they built the cultural center of their dreams, a place where one can learn and get a hand on multiple artistic disciplines and which is, above all, a place that conveys humane values and a true philosophy in life.
