Heiva Dance Festival opening ceremony
Originally uploaded by Pierre Lesage
The Heiva is a traditional Dance Festival in Tahiti that lasts a few weeks.
Large dance groups coming from the five archiplagoes spend months to prepare for the Heiva; today was the opening ceremony in the "Jardin de Paofai" at sunset.

Wind was OK, light was sometimes very warm, sometimes a bit flat, but flying a Kite with a camera between spectators and coconut trees, over dancers, with dozens of kids was REALLY very challenging and this 90 minutes session was quite stressfull!
