As I sit in my ride finishing my 3rd Steiny, Ladi 6’s song ‘Shine On’ is on the dial & coincidentally I attended her Aiga ( Family ) play last night. THE WHITE GUITAR,which consists of her 2 first cousins, New Zealand born Samoan brothers Matthias Luafutu ( Of hit NZ TV series HARRY ) & Malo Luafutu ( Scribe ) accompanied by their Father Fa’amoana John Luafutu ( Legendary blues guitarist, poet & novelist ) They act out a brutally honest & grimy performance depicted on their own lives which is rare in Theatre/Film.
Growing up in Grey Lynn and Ponsonby after Fa’amoana, later changed to John by an ignorant pakeha primary school teacher, arrived fresh off the boat, similar to the Matua from many Polynesian aiga.
Matthias plays several characters from past to present & delivers a raw & vintage performance, captivating each character at its core & generation.
Malo ( Scribe ) a natural showman & record breaking musician shows he can adapt to any genre/medium. Raising the bar as a natural talent in his powerful & surprisingly humorous, side of acting.
John makes his PowerPoint cameos during his sons reflection of himself in varying ages as a young Father, Poet, Drug addict, Gang Member, but more renown for his passion for the axe aka the gat.
Easily laying the soundtrack of every scene directed by The Conch’s Nina Ngwalowalo & the notorious Jim Moriaty with Tom McCrory & Pasifikas favourite allrounder Oscar Kightley as a script consultant on a Goldie canvas with Jimi Hendrix Little wing.
This is a piece of art that must be graced with your artistic presence that has bought a glass tint to as many eyes as it has standing ovations & there’s not many if any, that you as a NZ born Polynesian can adapt to as our ancestors The Panthers. Fight the power.
On now till Friday 15th of July.
