STORIES THEN & NOW

CARRIAGEWORKS AND PERFORMANCE 4A PRESENT

STORIES THEN & NOW

Directed by master storyteller and celebrated photographer William Yang and writer and producer Annette Shun Wah, Stories Then & Now is an inspiring new theatre work bringing together six Asian Australians to tell personal stories from their past to unravel the threads that lead to their present day lives.

Taking the audience from the conflict zones of China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Korea and Sri Lanka to the fraught family squabbles of suburban Australia; these candid narratives are drawn from the rich life experiences of academic and author Ien Ang; performer and writer Jenevieve Chang; filmmaker and writer Michael C.S. Park; producer and writer Sheila Pham; social worker and food writer Paul van Reyk and civil marriage celebrant Willa Zheng. The stories are told through words and rare photographs from private collections. Music by Nicholas Ng.

An umbrella event of Sydney Writers’ Festival 2013.
