The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe (85 Minutes)

TIME: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

LOCATION: 125 Frick Fine Arts Auditorium

The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe (85 minutes)
In 2010, theatre director Ros Horin took a monumental task: to take the remarkable, intense and sometimes horrifying stories of four African refugee women and transform them into stories a transcendent work of theatre, starring the women themselves. But in Yarrie, Aminata, Yordy and Rosemary, Horin was to discover women of uncommon courage and charisma, who had passed through the worst that life could throw at them and were still determined to make their mark on the world. The women are given the power to voice the tremendous violence done to them, and transform their trauma into something cleansing, forceful and awe-inspiring. We believe this film can be an important tool to help change attitudes, deepen understanding and build empathy amongst all of us towards people who have experienced violence and trauma.
