Stories East & West cast with William Yang & Annette Shun Wah

COOLie was a two-week season of Asian Australian performance that I produced at Belvoir St Theatre in Feb 2011 for Performance 4a as part of Chinese New Year Festival.  We also performed some shows at Riverside Theatres.  The season included storytelling shows Stories East & West – which I co-directed with William Yang – and  Meeting at Moree featuring William with Indigenous elder Noeline Briggs-Smith; and a truly unusual and uplifting variety show called About Face with comedians Oliver Phommavanh and Jennifer Wong; Paul Cordeiro; Suara Indonesia Dance; singer Lena Cruz and rock legend Les Gock.  Directed by Lisa Freshwater,  it was a hoot!
