Drama Workshop Press Release
Filet685 Productions, with project funding from the US Embassy in Apia, are running their first official Community Youth Drama Workshop, and although the age group targeted is 16-25 years of age, exceptions for younger children with a penchant for the performing arts are being made.
Creative husband and wife team Naea Asolelei To’alepai and Fiona Collins-To’alepai are excited about the upcoming workshop and sharing their knowledge, experience and training with the local youth. The participants will get to PLAY - play with dialogue text, monologues, drama games and story-telling through movement and sound. They will also be given some basic acting for screen and audition coaching, as well as basic lighting techniques and stage etiquette.
Naea and Fiona are hoping that through this workshop the participants will not only gain performance skills, but also enjoy the pathway of self-discovery and confidence through drama and the performing arts.
Their prior work in Samoa have included various stage plays (aloFA, Where We Once Belonged, Pele’s Stars, Frangipani Perfume), a seven-episode radio drama (Fa’atino Lou Valaauina”) and several pantomime children’s pieces (Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs, Magic Moments).
