Who Speaks For Me?
“……one of the most heartwarming things on stage this year…Their stories remind the audience of the resilience at the heart of the refugee and migrant experience.” ★★★★ timeout.com/sydney
Discover the unexpected stories of Western Sydney in this intimate multi-lingual, multi-generational storytelling show.
Through the personal narratives and photographs of three families from Cambodia, Vietnam and Bhutan
Who Speaks For Me? explores the vagaries of language – the powerlessness of those who do not have it,
the nuances lost in translation, and the sometimes hilarious consequences of misunderstanding it.
