Little Andromeda

To sail on voyaging waka in the Pacific with no land in sight is where this play begins. From prayers sung to distant stars and love letters to sun-drenched voyagers, My Grandfather is a Canoe brings the poems of Faumuina Felolini Maria Tafuna'i to the stage. Poet Laureate Tusiata Avia described this poetry collection as "a waka to enter; sit and take in the vista of her world and the world of the greatest moana on the planet. Here is a waka to shelter in, to feel the roll and swell of aroha and grief, joy and the many people – from both land and sky – who inhabit this vessel. My Grandfather is a Canoe pulses with rhythms of the Pacific: story and song, laughter and tears, drumbeat and heartbeat."

Performer: Faumuina Felolini Maria Tafuna'i

Musicians: Oliver Tafuna'i, Siose Kei
