AusAID Solid Sistas

This is what AusAID says about Solid Sistas: 'The play, Solid Sisters, for example, is about domestic violence and oppression of women which is a big problem in Vanuatu,' says Jo. 'The actors ask the audience how they feel about anger and aggression in the family. Talking about things is very much the way things are done here. In general people aren't readers. This is much more an oral society where the spoken word is prominent. Ni-Vanuatu culture lends itself beautifully to drama.'
