WHATEVER WILL THE neighBOURS THINK?  

“Unfortunately on this occasion, you have been unsuccessful. ***** acknowledges the effort that you have dedicated to your application and appreciates that you will be devastated by this result.”

Entering a bar after a tawdry weekend might be just your cup of tea. But hey, you win some, you lose some.

We Should Practice presents Horses and other farm animals, a new work from We Should Practice. Written and directed by Louise Tu´u and performed by Moe Laga, Mele Taeiloa, Riki Nofo'akifolau, Loma Teisi and Rosalind Tui, and special guests, Horses and other farm animals looks to environmental activism, paternal figures and funding rejection for inspiration.

Come join the dots.

We Should Practice is very excited to present this new work with recent Pacific Institute of Performing graduates, Rosalind Tui and Loma Teisi as well as seasoned performers, Rosita Vai and Ilasa Galuvao.

Louise Tu´u has been involved professionally in theatre and the visual arts for over a decade. She has written, directed and curated works such as Le Tauvaga, Providence, Top 16, Range of Convergence, Dead Mileage and To Fergusson with Love. Her most recent work is Gaga: the unmentionable.

Production design by the formidable and friendly Kate Burton.
