    Speaker Introduction:

    The objective of this speech is:
    • To understand the concept and nature of the monodrama.
    • To assume the identify of a character and to portray the physical and emotional aspects of this character to an audience.

    Today, Carol Prahinski will be reading a portion of Chapter 1 from “No Friend But the Mountain”s by Behrouz Boochani. Some parts of this reading may be disturbing; she apologizes if you find the reading upsetting.

    In the autobiographical story, a Kurdish-Iranian refugee attempts to reach Australia. He describes his journey in a mix of poetry and prose that he tapped out on a mobile phone in Farsi.

    Please join me in welcoming Carol.
