When hope is all you have, sometimes reality loses its way. A mother’s struggle to cope after the sudden death of her husband. A daughter’s deep dark secret yearning to be free. Both journey in isolation, set on a collision course that is moving at speed and from which they may never recover. A passionate, engaging and deeply vibrant inside peek into the gendered world of Tongan society and family. Told through Tongan contemporary dance, dramatic dialogue, monologue and song, Sei ‘O Fafine mesmerises you into the deep layers, with a dash of humour, of Tongan women’s self-perceptions, constraints, love, culture and struggles in a close family setting.
