Through a recreation of a people’s court, Tribunal interrogates the truth and lies surrounding the labels of ‘refugee’ and ‘asylum seeker’.

This thought-provoking experience brings together artists, Indigenous Elders, refugees, human rights activists and young leaders to present their perspectives, aspirations and connections to culture. 

Audiences will be challenged through a fusion of participatory performance, legal procedure and personal stories. Hear truths, share intimate conversations and celebrate resilience with PYT | Fairfield’s moving verbatim theatre piece – Tribunal.

Presented by Sydney Opera House and PYT | Fairfield

Tribunal Workshop
