Sepelini Mua’au (Sepe) was born and raised in Lower Hutt. His parents arrived on a plane from Samoan Aotearoa to Aotearoa in the 1970’s and his Dad endured the Dawn Raids before starting the Pacific Health Programme there.

Sepe was selected to perform at the Globe in 2010 in London followed by studying theatre at undergrad and honours level at Victoria University and a Masters alongside Toi Whakaari. Sepe now works as an actor and writer, director and tutor and is studying his PhD in theatre as well as a new father.

Sepe’s first Circa show was in June 2019, which was the “vampire takeover” with Second Unit for the New Zealand Festival, swiftly followed by Aotearoa Tawhiri, PSA Election 2020, The Surprise Party with Dave Armstrong in 2021, and a full season of Hole. In 2022 Sepe at Circa played Geppetto in Pinocchio and directed Flames: A Hip-hop Musical, which was part of the Kia Mau Festival.
