Heavy On The Female Empowerment.
Heavy On The Family Legacy.
Heavy On The Fa’aaloalo.
Set in a contemporary world, Brown Crown is the story of a young Samoan woman’s journey through life. Surrounded by expectations and legacy, her life is over-shadowed by the old legend of Nafanua, told to her as a young girl by her grandmother.
Brown Crown is a reflection of how much Pasifika women carry upon their shoulders.
‘…Brown Crown, in many ways, is Sarai Perenise-Ropeti’s battle cry to let us know more powerful, women-led, Pasifika theatre is on the horizon’.
