Te Molimau

Date: 5 Jul 2019

Vitolina is the only person who remains on the sinking Pacific nation of Tokelau in its final moments above the ocean.

It’s both a blessing and a burden. The others have all made the journey of resettlement to Australia. Only she remains to witness her Motherland take its final breath, pondering the uncertainty of her future and everything that once made her people who they were.

She must dance a final Fatele for her home and farewell what once was.

Set between Tokelau and Western Sydney and against the changing Pacific landscape, Taofia Pelesasa’s Te Molimau is a conversation about ‘Home’, about what makes us who we are and how to navigate new Oceans when the Vaka which carried us for generations can do so no longer.

Emele Ugavule directs.
