Hear from Rwandan born Australian writer, director, and performer Oliver Twist in this Q&A session following his 2022 performance of JALI. Oliver and host Gideon Mzembe discuss Oliver’s creative process and how his background influenced the production.
Jali: noun: a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet, or musician.
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.
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.
