Overrated, Intelligent, Entertaining, Great staging

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.

Intense, Poetic, Primal, Cultural, Sexual

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. Read more
