See it if A play about polynesian/ samoan life and culture. Has some humor, interesting dancing and gives you insight into its life.
Don't see it if Has some violent stories to it as well as themes. If your not interested in samoan culture.
See it if 6 actresses take turns enacting poems of Samoan womanhood. Sexuality, coming-of-age, religion, family, food. Builds to intense ending.
Don't see it if You are not interested in a powerful physical performance that is occasionally confusing & drawn out. Multiple slices of life; no plot.
"A powerful and engrossing study of the lives of Samoan women and their uneasy cultural collision with New Zealand. Unfortunately, at the performance under review no program was given out to explain that the Pacific Island actresses each played discrete characters."
"A rhythmic, exuberant and startling work of theater that resembles Ntozake Shange's choreopoem …a fierce, lively cast… there is enough that's both clear and compelling to transcend the barriers of language and culture - or, more precisely, to connect with our own."
