... how is your liberation bound up with mine? The 2002 Woomera refugee prison outbreak – after months of protests, including hunger strikes, 53 refugees escape during the Easter protest, supported by hundreds of outraged Australians. After witnessing the outbreak the audience is invited to consider the complex issues arising from this border crossing; in particular the diversity of constructions about protest and activism. HOLIDAY CAMP investigates the current Australian immigration policies, in the context of 200 years of colonisation, connecting the issues of Indigenous dispossession, genocide, and the incarceration of refugees. It explores the implications of the mandatory detention system and the construction of national borders.
