The ?upa?upa (often written as upa upa) is a traditional dance from Tahiti. It was mentioned by European explorers, who described it as very indecent. It is not quite clear how similar the gestures at that time were with the now immensely popular t?m?r?. In both dances the performers form groups of pairs of a boy and a girl, dancing more or less in sexually oriented movements. In the sexually suggestive oil painting "Upa upa" ("The Fire Dance," 1894), the artist is outsider looking in: Gauguin portrays Tahitian dancers and lovers from a voyeuristic distance.

The ?upa?upa (often written as upa upa) is a traditional dance from Tahiti. It was mentioned by European explorers, who described it as very indecent. It is not quite clear how similar the gestures at that time were with the now immensely popular t?m?r?. In both dances the performers form groups of pairs of a boy and a girl, dancing more or less in sexually oriented movements. In the sexually suggestive oil painting "Upa upa" ("The Fire Dance," 1894), the artist is outsider looking in: Gauguin portrays Tahitian dancers and lovers from a voyeuristic distance.

Paul Gauguin (1848 - 1903) was a French Post-Impressionist artist who was not well appreciated until after his death. Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of color and synthetist style that were distinctly different from Impressionism.He was an important figure in the Symbolist moment. His bold experimentation with color led directly to the Sythetist style of modern art.
