Presented by Perth Festival and Albany Entertainment Centre

Vibrant and emotional, this one-person show is as delicately told as it is captivating. Oliver uses personal anecdotes and humour as a powerful antidote to trauma and proves there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Jali: noun: a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet, or musician.
Oliver Twist: a charismatic comedian and performer refusing to be defined by his turbulent past.

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.

Jali is a vibrant and emotional journey that uses personal anecdotes and humour as a powerful antidote to trauma and proves there is light at the end of the tunnel.
