Theatre dance rehearsals with Director Roman Berry and Illegals The Game Show Cast members.

As a creative, an immigrant & arts advocate, I acknowledge that I create, collaborate and work on what always was and always will be the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. I pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. I recognise their unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded.

"Never fear in telling your truth, be proud of your stories, have fun and learn from the process AND collaborate, collaborate & collaborate"
