About this event

Passing is "oh! I didn't know you were, you know..."

Passing is the relief people feel when they ask about your last name before they say That Racist Thing.

Passing is something that Sara is great at. White people think she's white, Arabs think she's Arab. Easy! Well, sort of. On the one hand, she avoids a lot of racism. On the other hand, she hears what people really think. People sort of get that you can be culturally but not religiously Jewish. Sara's trying to do the same with Islam.

Things get more complicated when Sara gets a girlfriend.

Passing is a culmination of stories from biracial women growing in up Australia, and how they negotiate the grey areas between sexuality, religion, racism and family.

Presented by:
Improve Silence

Improve Silence is Perth’s premiere social impact focused theatre company. Using theatre, tech, innovative research and loads of empathy to tell stories that heal communities.

In 2017 Improve Silence presented Rather Than Later, the culmination of a six month journey into aged care homes, asking whether it was possible to celebrate the stories that transcend generations in spite of the fear, misunderstanding, and awkwardness that gets in our way. The program has since introduced many more artists to elders in aged care centres across WA, daring young people to ask the questions we need to ask sooner, rather than later, and to tell the stories that emerge.
