WHENEVER Jazymne Koch visited her birthplace in Maui, Hawaii, she would have fond memories of her grandmother and her family.

Now that she is living in a foreign land, she never fails to visit her family time and again.

And she used those memories to portray a contemporary dance, which was showcased at the Epeli Hau'ofa International Dance Festival on Wednesday night.

The German dancer was part of five other international dancers who took part in the three-night show, staged in memory of the late Mr Hau'ofa.

The audience watched in awe as Ms Koch portrayed featured memories of her grandmother and her life, and how she had gone back to visit their old family house where all childhood memories were.
