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.
