This week, we’re sharing stories recorded at All The Best Live! A live storytelling event we put on with help from The City Of Sydney.
Our lineup of amazing storytellers took to the stage and performed work on the theme of secrets and confessions. We’ll be delivering the stories from the night in two parts with part two coming out next week.
In our first story, Wing discovers why so many people are attending grave sweeping day at her grandfather’s grave. Wing is a journalist and audio producer in Sydney who spends too much time on watching cat videos. She is also the host of Chinese-ish, a new SBS podcast about young Chinese-Australians for young Chinese-Australians.
In our next story, Lungol shares a story of unrequited love. Lungol is an Indigenous Papua New Guinean storyteller and podcaster currently living and creating on Bidjigal land. You can experience his debut work ‘a body is all that remains’ at the Everything but the Kitchen Sink Festival next week and hear him every Friday on his podcast ‘Pasifikally.’
