Tree of Life
In Tree of Life, young refugees who have experienced the horror of war, trauma and persecution, perform their own true stories in a symphony of spoken word, music and movement.
Young refugees now attending Miller High School and Intensive English Centre, will charm and inspire with their humour, honesty and innocence as they perform pivotal moments from their lives. It’s the magic of authentic voices, calling us to share their stories of horror and joy, of laughter and pain, of wonder and resilience.
Originally from countries such as Iraq and Syria, each cast member is a survivor of the world events we witness daily on the evening news. Each performs their own story of escape, survival and eventual triumph through a powerful fusion of spoken word, movement, and projected imagery.
