It takes bravery and guts to perform on stage in front of an audience… but Lusi does it all the time.

Despite growing up with a disability, Lusi Faiva breaks barriers as a physically challenged dancer and actor in the theatre world. In this short documentary, we get a glimpse at the creation and progression of her latest project; the sensory-immersive theatre production called Masina Returning Home.

Previous festival selections include:
