Rising Voices Summer Series
Auckland Fringe & Auckland Pride 2015
Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre
12 - 14 Feb 2015
Rising Voices is a literary speed dating night with some of the most exciting new story tellers in Auckland. Each of the three nights features a different line-up of performers to take you on a virtual tour of their hearts and minds – and the world.
Thursday's show opens in Samoa – or does it? Grace Taylor gives an insightful glimpse into the world of a white afakasi woman – a woman with one Samoan parent, one Palagi parent and an identity that hangs in the balance. Taylor evokes the struggle of belonging with lines like: “The white afakasi woman knows her place. The white afakasi woman tries too damn hard. The white afakasi woman is the only Pacific representative on your committee.”
