Letters from a distant heart
Silkweed have been funded by Tas Regional Arts to write and develop "Letters from a Distant Heart".
This piece is based on letters written by my (Erin's) father during WW11 as a young soldier and Japanese prisoner of war.
It also reflects through dramatic means and letters the plight of asylum seekers similarly separated from loved ones.
Overture from "Letters from a Distant Heart" by Silkweed. This show features a story told through letters, music and slides, of an Australian soldier in Japanese POW camps and an Afghani asylum seeker in an Australian detention Centre.
