Tribunal is an ambitious new participatory performance project that brings together artists, human rights activists, lawyers, young leaders and outlaws. An Australian Truth and Reconciliation Tribunal will be created to interrogate and explore notions of truth and lies around the politically contentious labels of ‘refugee’ and ‘asylum seeker’. 

Each night, presenters will offer provocations, thoughts and experiences in a performed conversation on issues which directly affect the community of Western Sydney – their perspectives, aspirations and connections to culture, and how these perspectives impact the broader Australian community.

The conversation for Tribunal has been instigated by Karen Therese, a 2015 Griffin Studio Artist, and Artistic Director of Powerhouse Youth Theatre (PYT). PYT creates innovative performance and social artistic experiences. 

A Powerhouse Youth Theatre production, co-presented by Powerhouse Youth Theatre and Griffin Theatre Company
