AIGA | World Premiere! Auckland Arts Festival 2024
AIGA (Samoan for family/whānau) is a groundbreaking and emotional Disability-led Pasifika-led work of theatre told through the lens of the real-life journey of Lusi Faiva.
A collective creative ensemble of women, non-binary, disabled, non-disabled, Pasifika and Maori identities brings this quest for identity and belonging to life, artfully sharing their own experiences with and through Lusi’s.
AIGA is an Aotearoa story with universal resonance: an honest and heartfelt work that moves you, expands your empathy and consciousness and invites you to explore new perspectives of being. With a powerhouse creative team, this work features storytelling at its core; a story that will make you laugh, cry, think and feel – one that needs to be heard.
