In Between Two

Joelistics and James Mangohig

"This is a hip hop show unlike any other.  An Australian narrative challenging how you think, how you feel about society and its moral fibre."     ★★★★½ THE MUSIC

TZU’s Joelistics and ARIA-nominated producer James Mangohig are icons of Australian hip-hop and their family histories are as complex and layered as their lyrics. Both half-Asian, their respective heritages are woven through their experiences growing up in Australia.

From a nightclub-owning grandma in an open marriage to globetrotting parents with a political streak, the pair lovingly paint a canvas filled with failed proposals and religious strictures, casual racism and empowerment through music.

Like an hour with good friends—who just happen to have impeccable taste in tunes— this is a show that keeps to the beat of the human heart.

“…nothing is more satisfying than stories about people who defied cultural and social conventions to follow their hearts.”   
★★★★ TIME OUT

Directed by Suzanne Chaundy and developed with master storyteller William Yang and writer Annette Shun Wah, In Between Two is a vibrant, contemporary portrayal of the Asian Australian experience. 

Written & performed by Joel Ma & James Mangohig
