"William Yang's performances are among the enduring pleasures of Australian theatre… part of the appeal is Yang's presence on the side of the stage - contemplative, charming, with an understated vocal style that eschews rhetoric."
The Australian

"Shadows is the kind of art that will leave haunting and beautiful images in your mind for days. It is like a retrospective meditation on the theme of cultural reconciliation."
The West Australian

Story-teller and photographer William Yang presents a moving account of two communities haunted by the shadows of history:  Aboriginal people in outback Enngonia, and German migrants to South Australia, interned during the World Wars.

Extraordinary stories come to life in Yang's uniquely intimate monologues with slides - part social documentary, part personal observation.  In Shadows, Yang combines his own original photography with precious found images stowed away by families for generations, to take us on a journey of dispossession and reconciliation.

Shadows marks a new road for William Yang - it's his first work telling stories other than his own.  His previous works (including Blood Links, Friends of Dorothy, The North, Sadness) explored his own family history, and those of the Chinese diaspora and the Sydney gay community.

Yang's wryly sensitive perspective, his eye for detail, and his arresting images come together with Colin Offord's "restless, driving score" (SMH), in an unforgettable theatrical experience - already acclaimed by critics and audiences at three major Australian Festivals, and across Europe and North America.

Shadows by William Yang is on at the Caloundra Cultural Centre on Wednesday, 31st May at 7:30pm.  Ticket Prices are $29.50 Adult, $25.00 Concession or Group of ten or more bookings.  Bookings (07) 5491 4240, Box Office Hours: Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:30pm, Saturday 9:00am-11:30am, Box Office open 1 hour prior to performance.
