Dear reader,

Today, The Saturday Paper published Behrouz Boochani’s poetic manifesto, A Letter From Manus Island.

To mark this piece, and Behrouz’s contribution to public discourse while held on Manus, the essay was performed in the courtyard at the Malthouse Theatre by writer and poet Maxine Beneba Clarke.

Special thanks to the Malthouse Theatre, Maxine Beneba Clarke and Behrouz Boochani for making this happen.

Here is the podcast of the performance.
