The final day of WOMADelaide 2017 provided many of the festival’s highlights. The rains had cleared, giving way to perfect autumnal weather that stretched into the late evening, and the slightly lower crowd numbers made for a wonderfully chilled vibe. Add to that a terrific line-up of acts, and it all made for a great end to the weekend.

The Backstories is a series of shows developed for the Adelaide Festival by Annette Shun Wah and William Yang from CAAP to explore the Asian-Australian experience, in this case featuring Moya Dodd’s story. The performance elegantly presents Dodd’s family history in a way that engages the audience, exploring her passions and relating the tale of her success.
