About Us (Television Program)
Summary A one woman show based on the stories of Anna Yen's (writer) grandmother, mother and herself. It is a unique blend of storytelling, circus skills, clowning, movement and magic. Yen embodies her grandmother's stories of survival in 1930's China and Hong Kong, to her mother's dislocation and grief in suburban Sydney in the 1960's, to her own grief, confusion and peace-making with her family's histories
