Fa’aafa combines Samoan oral traditions, adornment, movement and sound. Juxtaposed against the colour and contrast of modern digital projection, Fa’aafa creates a gripping and responsive Samoan fagogo (fable) for young urban polynesians. Created by digital native Pati Solomona Tyrell this work unveils a world known only to Samoans through whispers. Featuring Joey Tinai, Falencie Filipo, Moe Laga. With poetry by renowned Samoan poet Tusiata Avia.

“When Tyrell dances the siva Samoa dressed in sheer black material, he exposes the grace of masculinity and the warriorness of femininity; he is aitu - a Samoan spirit - bringing the rise of dead concepts into swaying new life”
