Standing in My Own Truth

In a world of half-truths and lies,

when is it safe to own one’s true destiny?

Written By Rani Moorthy


Christina Fonthes, Shahireh Sangrezeh, Fereshteh Mozaffari

Directed by Rachel Brogan


Standing in My Own Truth is a cross-art exploration of the brave, often circuitous journey towards one’s own destiny.

Liberated from the shackles of an old life, but still yearning for a time of innocence in a land far away. Making a new life in a baffling city that offers sanctuary but no peace of mind. Yet still finding time to rejoice in a song or two.

Presented as part of the Journeys Festival International, this soulful and intimate theatre piece was created with, and is performed by women from refugee and migrant heritages as part of CAN’s Exodus programme.
