Tribunal


After a Sold-Out season and acclaim at Griffin Theatre in 2016, TRIBUNAL is returning for a very special season, at the home of PYT in Fairfield, Australia’s most culturally diverse suburb. TRIBUNAL interrogates Australia’s past and present through the telling of parallel stories of indigenous Australia and newly arrived refugees. 

TRIBUNAL is an ambitious new participatory performance project that brings together artists, human rights activists, lawyers, young leaders and outlaws. An Australian Truth and Reconciliation Tribunal is created to interrogate and explore notions of truth and lies around the labels of ‘refugee’ and ‘asylum seeker’.

Having seen the show on opening night, I can say that it's heart is even deeper and more assured than in its first season at the Griffin. We are a country that can create and compound complex trauma in its first and latest peoples. We are also a country that can create and compound joy when we listen and bare witness and ensure safety. This show by this amazing team does the latter.

2nd March – 11th March, Thursday – Saturday 7.30pm 
The PYT Fairfield Theatre, 19 Harris St Fairfield 
Tickets available through www.eventbrite.com.au
