Description

"Jali: noun: a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet, or musician.  Oliver Twist: a charismatic comedian and performer refusing to be defined by his turbulent past.  In this one-person show that is as delicately told as it is captivating, Oliver uses his exceptional storytelling abilities to reflect on his time as a refugee and to unpack what his life looks like now. After fleeing the Rwandan civil war at the age of four, Oliver spent his childhood in Malawi, first in a refugee camp, and later in the city where his mother and father started a small convenience store. After acceptance into the Australian government’s refugee intake, the family arrived in Ipswich in 2014 to begin a new life.  Using personal anecdotes, drama and humour as a powerful antidote to trauma JALI?is a vibrant and emotional journey that patiently proves there is light at the end of the tunnel. " Warnings: Contains haze and smoke effects and references to violence Access: "WCH / assistive listening / AD / TT / auslan Auslan interpreted performance Thu 17 Feb 7.30pm Audio described performance Fri 18 Feb 7.30pm Tactile tour available before the show on Fri 18 Feb (starts 6.30pm)"
