William Yang

William Yang: The Story Only I Can Tell

The Story Only I Can Tell is the auto-biographical story of William Yang’s life. William is an iconic Australian photographer, internationally renowned for his performances that fuse warm family stories. William grew up in North Queensland on a tobacco farm, and has made his way in the world as an architect, playwright, photographer, visual artist, film-maker, and now a story-teller.

He has led a varied life, in his work as a social photographer he has met and formed friendships with celebrities including Patrick White, Brett Whiteley and Jenny Kee. However the main thrust of his story is a search for identity: coming out as a gay man in the seventies and later coming out as an Australian born Chinese. This led to stories about the murder of his uncle in 1922, and his family who have been in Australia since the 1880s. Most of his eleven pieces have played in over 25 countries around the world to universal acclaim.

During the show's tour, William will be conducting masterclass storytelling workshops to senior high school students in Barraba, Glen Innes and Armidale.
