Brown; It’s Complicated is a lively, funny and compelling insight into being Islander in white society: the frustrations, the misunderstandings, the good things, the great things and of course – the complicated.
Four amazing Pacific Performers come together to present to you a hilariously dramatic style infused within the raw and confronting truths of being brown in New Zealand. There are shades of brown between "the black and white". Being brown in a dominantly white society is complicated and this show is the voice for how dynamic the complications actually are.
Director and Writer Antonia Kamu together with her cast: Samuel Kamu, Selu Iloahefaiva, Saale Ilaua and Lynne Vatau have crafted together a Pacific Theatre show that will have you laughing so hard and crying just as much at their own personal expense and the experiences of those in their wider Pacific Community.
Alongside the wonderfully gifted actors are the amazingly talented singers and musicians who have been cleverly incorporated into the show (just to add to the complications). Come and meet our very large Pacific Island family and watch how they navigate the imbalance between two very contrasting cultural values that unfolds through great comedy and drama. Not much more can be said other than – It's Complicated, being Brown.
