“I was four years old when it came, my Father had to instruct the young men of the village who dug the mass graves; there was also a young woman in the village who died while breastfeeding her baby…although I was only little, it was a very hard time for us”

Inspired by the memories of her beloved Grandmother, Avea’i Fui, and the research of Dr. John McLane, Tupe Lualua’s latest development piece is a response to the devastating Spanish Influenza Pandemic of 1918. Presented through live performance, “1918” explores the effects of the disease which claimed the lives of nearly 8,500 men, women, and children in Samoa and became a catalyst for Samoa’s resistance against the New Zealand colonial government.

Written and directed by Tupe Lualua (Savaia, Lefaga, Leusoali’i Luatuanu’u)
Choreographed by Andy Faiaoga (Manono Tai, Luatuanu’u, Savaia, Lefaga)
