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 its participants. The stories are told through words and rare photographs from private collections. Presented by Carriageworks and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
