Tree of Life

22 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017 | 10am, 12:30pm & 7pm


Treehouse Theatre and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre present
Tree of Life

In Tree of Life, young refugees who have experienced the horror of war, trauma and persecution, will perform their own true stories in a symphony of spoken word, music and movement.

Now attending Miller Technology High School and Intensive English Centre, these students will charm and inspire with their humour, honesty and innocence as they perform pivotal moments from their lives.  The performance consists of some 30 vignettes which will leave audiences not only laughing and smiling but with a greater understanding of the refugee journey and the amazing contribution these young refugees are already making to the Australian community.

Teenage refugees take to the stage to share stories of plight, change audience perceptions in Sydney
