 The Story Only I Can Tell

Presented by Monash Academy of Performing Arts

The Story Only I Can Tell is the fascinating story of William Yang’s life. His forebears migrated from China to Australia over a hundred years ago and subsequent generations adapted to Western culture. William grew up in North Queensland on a tobacco farm, and has made his way in the world as an architect, a playwright, a photographer, a visual artist, a film-maker, and now a story-teller. He has led a varied life, working alongside many of Australia’s best-known artists from all artforms, including Brett Whitely, Jenny Kee and Patrick White.

He is internationally renowned for his poignant work exploring social diversity, belonging and travel. From behind the camera, Yang connects with audiences around Australia and the world through his intimate photographs and observations of events and people around him.

“William Yang’s performances are among the enduring pleasures of Australian Theatre” John McCallum THE AUSTRALIAN
