Performance Art of the Week: Poi


Performance Art of the Week: Poi

Poi is a style of performance art originating with the Māori people of New Zealand that involves swinging tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns. Poi equipment can be made from various materials with different handles, weights, and effects (such as fire). Now popular with many Millennials, Poi performances can be viewed at music festivals around the world.
