QPAC describes the event as follows:

"In this one-person show that is as delicately told as it is captivating, Oliver uses his exceptional storytelling abilities to reflect on his time as a refugee and to unpack what his life looks like now.

After fleeing the Rwandan civil war at the age of four, Oliver spent his childhood in Malawi, first in a refugee camp, and later in the city where his mother and father started a small convenience store. After acceptance into the Australian government’s refugee intake, the family arrived in Ipswich in 2014 to begin a new life.

Using personal anecdotes, drama and humour as a powerful antidote to trauma JALI is a vibrant and emotional journey that patiently proves there is light at the end of the tunnel."
