We All Know What’s Happening

We All Know What’s Happening is a new work made in collaboration with seven children in Melbourne and in conversation with seven children who are refugees living in Nauru.

Filled with costumes and colonialism, handmade props, young voices and tambourines, We All Know What’s Happening is  a story about the Mona Lisa, marbles, seagull poo and state sanctioned child abuse.
