Jahra Wasasala and ooshcon, creating under the collaborative pseudonym CONJAH, embody an intersection of Fijian and Samoan heritage, infusing their artistic offerings with a rich lineage of influences. As artists, world-builders, and entity-benders, CONJAH craft performance narratives that delve deep into the canon of Tagata Moana future-mythos, exploring themes of terror and transformation. Their performances are immersive experiences, driven by compelling fractured characters and set in worlds that defy conventional boundaries. Trusted facilitators and mentors, CONJAH focus on holding dance-based spaces where participants can amplify their own practices through shared movement practices and rigorous intentionality. Rooted in a landscape shaped by visions masquerading as nightmares, CONJAH’s creative practice transcends limitations, mapping out new territories of performance, physicality, emotional depth and cultural resonance.
