In his latest work, internationally renowned storyteller and photographer William Yang invites audiences on a journey to find meaning amidst the beauty and chaos of the world. Extraordinary stories come to life in Yang’s uniquely intimate monologue accompanied by slides of his award-winning photographs.

Part social documentary, part personal observation, Objects for Meditation celebrates everyday objects that Yang has collected. Yang’s famed monologues with slides have made him one of the most internationally toured Australian performance artists, with Objects for Meditation having already charmed audiences in Brussels, Netherlands, France, Norway, Reunion Island, Singapore, Sydney and Brisbane.

Yang’s wryly sensitive perspective, eye for detail, and arresting images come together with Paul Jarman’s haunting score, in an unforgettable theatrical experience.
