“I was always like, like a magnet with my Dad, like everywhere he went I was right next to him. Tucked under his arm, or if I knew he was going I’d hide in the back of the car and wait for him to drive off and pop up when he was halfway there or something. He never got rid of me…:”

Between the years 1900-1970, an unknown number of Indigenous children were forcibly removed from their families. Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost and culture stripped away.Using testimonials from the survivors of the Stolen Generation, Melbourne Fringe Festival award winner and Noongar man Ian Michael invites you to listen in on the silenced stories of his country.
