Meet the cast of Stories Then & Now
Presented by Performance 4a and
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 historical conflicts in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Korea and Sri Lanka to the fraught family sqabbles of suburban Australia today, these candid narratives are drawn from the rich life experiences of academic and author Ien Ang, performer and writer Jenevieve Chang, video journalist 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.
Music by Nicholas Ng.
