Under the Trees Pasifika Theatre Project

“Never pick wet apples! They’ll rot faster!” Nothing could speak better to the journey that lies ahead with Under the Trees, a compelling new multimedia theatre work being developed in Shepparton by local Pasifika arts collective Know Your Roots Inc and Melbourne-based Pasifika creatives from Pacific Island Creative Arts Australia.

Set in present-day Shepparton, this seminal new work will delve deeply into the history of migrant Pasifika farm workers and will bring to life their stories along with those of their children who have grown up far from their Island homelands.

“With its rich history and vibrant dwellers, we can’t wait to see what will unfold from the Shepparton stories once they’re ready for picking. I can’t wait for the next stage of this project” says Asalemo Tofete who recently spent the weekend in Shepparton along with his colleagues from Pacific Island Creative Arts Australia meeting and hearing from local community.
