Intended Audience: All teachers and secondary students

Young migrant and refugee women share stories of the decisions that shaped their lives. Join us as we explore the funny, moving, challenging and sometimes bizarre experience of moving to a new country.

Students Against Racism is a group of students who came to Australia as refugees and migrants from a diversity of countries and personal circumstances. Many schools have benefitted from participating in their Living in Between program.

This is a new dramatic performance by women from the group, developed with the assistance of their EAL teacher, Gini Ennals, and drama teacher, Sadie Chrestman. Together they have incorporated an old folk tale "The Seal Wife" to draw similarities between this story and the journey of women in the group.

TORN is presented by the Students Against Racism as part of Living in Between: Diversity Education through Storytelling, a project supported by A Fairer World, TasTAFE, the Alcorso Foundation and the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship through the Diversity and Social Cohesion Program.

Venue: Backspace Theatre, Campbell St, Hobart (behind the Theatre Royal)
