Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in backyards across Perth and regional Western Australia. In 2021, Backstories featured locations in Margaret River, South Fremantle, Midland, Quinns Rocks and more.
Backstories 2021 was made possible with funding from Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Centre for Stories Founders Circle.
This story was collected at our Subiaco backyard. It features Min Sheen Tan, who travelled from New Zealand to Australia in 2020, with nothing short of literal (and metaphorical) shit-throwing along the way.
