Fatu Na Toto (planted seeds) is an original work devised by Tupe Lualua and co-presented by Tempo and Pacific Dance NZ. This work explores the effects of migration expressed through the language of Siva Samoa and Samoan song. A picture is painted of a migrant family living in suburbia and living through the contributing influences affecting the family and the impact this has on a new generation being raised in a new land.

Lualua weaves a narrative with oratory, music, song and dance creating an uplifting, sometimes dramatic and moving portrayal of a story which sits close to the bone. This work has been heavily influenced by Lualua’s community upbringing in Porirua, Wellington. It is an interpretation of her own family’s story and what they discovered during their journey in search of a 'better' life.

This work premiered in Wellington during the Fringe Festival earlier in the year and this will be its Auckland launch.
