Berry's multi-media production, The Folding Wife was staged recently as part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne.The Folding Wife is loosely based on Berry's childhood, growing up in the Philippines until he migrated to Australia aged 10. Berry's mother married an Australian man so Berry and his sister Valerie moved with her to the remote South Australian township of Ceduna to start a new life. At school Berry began reading Henry Lawson and began to imagine his mother as The Drover's Wife - a woman in a hostile landscape struggling to survive.Performed by Berry's sister Valerie, The Folding Wife looks at the stereotypical depictions of Filipino women and the history of Berry's homeland under the shadow of Ferdinand Marcos' dictatorship.Berry says his greatest challenge lay in creating a fresh way of telling a migrant story
