A COUNTING AND CRACKING OF HEADS
Siddhartha lives in present day Western Sydney, where he arrived as a baby with his mother fleeing the civil war in Sri Lanka.
His story is part of the play A Counting and Cracking of Heads, which follows the uprooting and resettling of a family over four generations from Sri Lanka to Australia. Through their journey, we see a Sri Lanka riven by, but by no means surrendering to, violent divisions – and an Australia transforming of, but also transformed by, the people that flee to its shores.
Siddhartha’s story is told in the theatre. It’s a co-production with Belvoir Theatre and will be told in early 2017.
Sid also appears in Lily’s story.
