When hope is all you have, sometimes reality loses its way. A motherâ€™s struggle to cope after the sudden death of her husband. A daughterâ€™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 â€˜O Fafine mesmerises you into the deep layers, with a dash of humour, of Tongan womenâ€™s self-perceptions, constraints, love, culture and struggles in a close family setting.
