Ten Pound Poms
Promenade Performance and Exhibition
10 & 11 August 12-2pm (performance at 1pm)
Head to Tilbury Docks on 10 & 11 August to discover the stories of the Ten Pound Poms, who traveled from Tilbury Port to Port Adelaide to start a new life in Australia.
Time Will Tell will debut a special promenade performance, devised alongside community participants in Essex and Australia. Performed in both the UK and Australia, the piece explores stories of the Ten Pound Poms against a wider background of people throughout history dreaming of travel, of far-off places, of success and happiness, excitement and fulfillment.
Artist Lata Upadhyaya will also present ‘Populate or Perish’, a series of new work based on the experiences of migrants that left the UK to start a new life in Australia, representing their real life experience of each stage.
Free event and open to all, no booking required.
