Tales of a Migrant Plantation

A fusion of culture, performance, dance, art and storytelling shared through the lives of LGBTIQA+ individuals from the Pacific diaspora.

Pacific Essence weaves the tapestry of Rainbow narratives through performance, dance and a talanoa panel discussion with a backdrop of photographs from this year's Stonewall 50th Anniversary World Pride New York March.

Join local Melbourne-based Samoan fa'afafine / trans advocate of colour activist, speaker, performer and storyteller Amao Leota Lu on a journey with her extended Rainbow family through the highs and lows, tears and laughter – embracing the notion "You’re welcome at our table."

Presented as part of the Queer Unsettled program in partnership with Midsumma Festival, supported by the Australia Council.
