PLAYWRIGHT AND PERFORMER: Dianna Fuemana
...
Pangea World Theater and Intermedia Arts present Falemalama, an artistically powerful and inspiring performance by Dianna Fuemana, playwright and artist from New Zealand.
"We experience her struggle, adaptation, and survival in a new place as a non-English speaking migrant.Falemalama is a mother who has lost and found her children and husband over the years across the Pacific Ocean.It is an exploration of the migrant Pacific Island woman's journey of spirituality and how it was perceived as mental illness in a western society," explains Dianna Fuemana.
"Falemalama is a tender look at our women who are now our grandmothers, in their time and ours," says Dianna.She took her previous play, Her Mother Dreaming, based on a similar theme, to Athens, Hawaii, the U.S., Australia, and the Edinburgh Festival last year.

New Zealand-born Niuean playwright Dianna Fuemana lived through the terror of Cyclone Heta and now she's using her talent to help the people of Niue.
THE EDGE®, together with booBALAR Productions and supported by Niu FM, presents the Auckland premiere of The Packer, at the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre, THE EDGE®, on February 28 and 29.All proceeds will go to the Cyclone Heta Niue Relief Fund to help rebuild Niue.
Dianna was in Niue on a Creative New Zealand writer residency when the cyclone hit four days into her month-long stay.
"We were about one kilometre away from the major devastation and in a relatively safe area.Seven of us all huddled together for the night during the cyclone.We couldn't sleep and all we could do was imagine what it was like for others on the island who weren't safe.It was very scary and very emotionally draining."
The next day Dianna and her friends left the house to discover the devastation.A cliff-front house, which was being prepared for Dianna, had been completely swept away by the waves from 40 metres below.Dianna says the destruction was hard to comprehend.
Dianna returned to New Zealand and approached THE EDGE® about staging a fundraising performance of The Packer, her critically-acclaimed play which premiered in Wellington and Melbourne last year.
"Pacific performance has long been a major part of the Herald Theatre programme and we're very pleased to present The Packer and help the people of Niue," says THE EDGE® Director of Theatre Programming and Development Robbie Macrae.
Written and directed by Dianna, The Packer will star New Zealand actor Jay Bunyan, who currently appears in Australian television soap Neighbours and is volunteering his time.

"Niue's people have spirit and they will go on," says Dianna.

"Fuemana has written and directed a slick, action-packed comedy that needs only a bare stage, save for five large cardboard boxes, some excellent sound and lighting effects and a clever actor to tell her story.
