Plantation is the sequel to Iaheto Ah Hi’s first play Tautai, which was staged at Mangere Arts Centre – Ngā Tohu o Uenuku in 2010.
Plantation is a Polynesian love story that explores the ancient knowledge of growing taro and the trials of growing families. A Samoan story celebrating family, growth and redemption, the play is set in two timeframes: present day urban South Auckland, and Samoa’s rainforest in the 1950’s. In both Samoan and English, Plantation celebrates language, song, chants, dance and rainforest lore.
Connecting the past and the present, Samoa and South Auckland, Plantation is a unique celebration and acknowledgement of the 50th Anniversary of Samoa’s Independence.
From cultural advice to set design, graphics and choreography, Plantation is a truly Polynesian creative collaboration.
Aleni Tufuga, Stacey Leilua and Leilani Clarke, written and directed by Iaheto Ah Hi.
