A Minute’s Silence is an interactive theatre play that explores the concept of Australian citizenship, migrant identity, and the role of memory in individual and collective storytelling.

By mixing poetry, personal anecdotes, interviews, and historical archives, Gloria Demillo explores what it means to be an Australian citizen and migrant grappling with dominant narratives of history and the way war has impacted generations of people. The play contrasts the personal and lived history of migrants growing up in Sydney’s multicultural west with the prescribed learning of Australian national identity that is so closely tied with militarism, colonial violence, and the ANZACs.
