The National Play Festival unites audiences and artists in a celebration of bold and compelling Australian stories. Playwriting Australia, in association with Carriageworks, will present four days of plays, talks and special events from 12 to 15 June, including a Keynote Address by Andrew Bovell – one of Australia’s finest playwrights - who will explore the iconic moments that have inspired his work. Plus you’ll be amongst the first to see performances of four exciting new Australian plays. Check out Playwriting Australia for more details.


In Georgina Naidu's humourous autobiographical show, a confused little Indian-Australian girl looks to popular culture to find a home.

William Yang
williamyang.jpgWilliam Yang was born in North Queensland, his grandparents migrating from China to the Top End in the 1880s. After completing a Bachelor of Architecture at Queensland University he moved to Sydney in 1969 and worked as a freelance photographer documenting Sydney's social life which included the glamorous celebrity set and the hedonistic, sub-cultural, gay community.  His first solo exhibition "Syndeyphiles" in 1977 at the Australian Centre for Photography caused a sensation because of its frank depiction of the Sydney gay and party scene.

In the mid eighties William began to explore his Chinese heritage which had hitherto been lost to him by his complete assimilation into the Australian way of life. His photographic themes expanded to include landscapes and the Chinese in Australia. During this period he made visits to China.

In 1989 he integrated his skills as a writer and a visual artist. He began to perform monologues with slide projection in the theatre. These slide shows were a form of performance theatre and have become his favourite form of showing his work. The third one, Sadness, wove together two themes: William's discovery of his Chinese heritage and the rituals of dying and death in Sydney. The piece has been extremely successful and like his more recent work has toured all over Australia and the world. He has made ten full length works in all, including China, Blood Links, Objects for Meditation and My Generation.
