Joseph, David, 1954-2018
Books
Deceptive Threads unravels the lives of performer, David Joseph's grandfathers; one a singer turned ASIO spymaster who vetted unwanted arrivals, the other a 19th-century Lebanese immigrant who had to lie about his birthplace to gain Australian naturalisation. Using sophisticated projection mapping, archival documents, and a unique blend of physical theatre and drumming, Joseph explores the complex layers of family history that create our personal identities, whilst examining contentious issues around immigration and racism in historical and contemporary Australia.
