We All Know What’s Happening | Darwin Festival

Welcome to a tropical island full of palm trees, phosphate mines, coconut water and kids.

Set against a backdrop of handmade costumes and colonialism, this is an absurd, true story about Leonardo da Vinci, seagull shit, the Pacific and children in detention.

Part school musical, part history lesson and part political probe, We All Know What’s Happening sees people too young to vote, confront power, complacency, children’s rights and the future.

This neo-colonial history lesson by Samara Hersch, Lara Thoms and a cast of child activists is a response to ongoing fraught global relationships with the island of Nauru and attempts to give voice to those censored from the conversation. Compelling and unsettling yet thoroughly entertaining, We All Know What’s Happening is a show for all ages and one that will have everyone talking.
