Touch Compass

A journey of identity, desire, family, and what it means to be disabled and Pasifika.

 (Sāmoan for family/whānau) is a groundbreaking and emotional Disability-led, Pasifika-led work of theatre told through the lens of the real-life journey of Pacific Toa award-winning, founding member Lusi Faiva.

A collective creative ensemble of women, non-binary, disabled, non-disabled, Pasifika and Māori identities brings this quest for identity and belonging to life, artfully sharing their own experiences with and through Lusi’s.

An Aotearoa story with universal resonance. An honest and heartfelt work that moves you, expands your empathy and consciousness and invites you to explore new perspectives of being. With a powerhouse creative team, this work features storytelling at its core; a story that will make you laugh, cry, think and feel – one that needs to be heard.
