A mother’s own childhood experiences of bigotry are triggered when her son is picked on for the colour of his skin. Another mother pre-judges a parent at the school drop-off on the basis of her appearance. A disparate group of travellers on the trans-Siberian railway in the 1930s share memories of Chinese culture, history and politics. And an Australian-Chinese visitor finds herself both fascinated and estranged riding a subway in modern-day China. Moon Orchard presents a range of Asian Australian voices exploring identity and experience in a variety of writing styles from prose to poetry to spoken word. Includes by ‘Fair Enough’ by Seetha Nambiar Dodd, ‘And/Or’ by Lin Blythe, ‘Time and Prejudice’ by Rohini Keegan Alexander, ‘Clockwork’ by Christine Pang, ‘The Quiet Places I Walk’ by Isabelle Quilty, ‘West of Chita’ by B. Fanlin, ‘I Owe You’ by Janet Bi Li Chan and ‘Succumbing to Dystopia’ by Angela Jin. With special guest, Hawaiian-based Vietnamese multi-media artist, azianami, performing ‘Memories Butterflies’. Edited by Sophie Amos and Luzelle Sotelo. The Moon Orchard project is supported by the New South Wales Government through Create NSW.
