A novel theatre production about to premiere in western Sydney tells the stories of a group of African women who’ve come to Australia as refugees. The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe was created by writer/director Ros Horin, and uses song, dance and drama to explore the experience of surviving war and abuse.

Over the past decade there has been an increase in African refugees arriving in Australia. The troupe’s creators hope the show will address the lack of African perspectives on the national arts scene, and encourage Australians to be more compassionate towards those seeking asylum.
