STANDING IN MY OWN TRUTH

PRESENTED BY COMMUNITY ARTS NORTH WEST

Written by Rani Moorthy, with Christina Fonthes, Shahireh Sangrezeh, Fereshteh Mozaffari. Directed by Rachel Brogan.

In a world of half-truths and lies, when is it safe to own one's true destiny? Standing In My Own Truth is a cross-art exploration of the brave, often circuitous journey towards one's own destiny. Created with, and performed by refugee and migrant women as part of CAN's Exodus programme.

Making a new life in a baffling city that offers sanctuary but no peace of mind. Liberated from the shackles of the old life but still yearning for a time of innocence in a land too far away. Yet always finding time for joy in a song.
