[Sponsored] Five refugees are taking the saying ‘there’s a light at the end of the tunnel’ quite literally with a secret train tunnel performance
The ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ has to be one of the English language’s most enduring and well-known sayings. It refers to how there’s always an end to a period of suffering, but the adage is not usually meant in a literal sense.
As part of the Zinda Festival (formerly the Bendigo Festival of Cultures), five local refugees will be telling their stories in Light at the End, a narrative performance taking place in one of Bendigo’s disused railway tunnels. During the performances each refugee will tell a personal story about moments of light, strength and the humanity they’ve seen – the light at the end of their personal tunnels. Ticket bookings can be made online, and entry is by gold-coin donation.
