Anchoring the Wind…Because I Matter

We’ve spent our whole life running

The old world on our backs

Our eyes full of what’s left behind

Don’t be silenced…”

Anchoring The Wind…Because I Matter is the culmination of a long-term collaboration between the Department of Education and Training, local government, community health and the Victorian Commissioner for Children and Young People.

First premiering in 2015, Anchoring the Wind is a new Australian work that explores the issues surrounding some of our most vulnerable young people, especially those in care, and those who work with them.

This play gives voice to some of these stories, navigates the complexities of the care system and envisions a safer world.

Anchoring the Wind…Because I Matter is authentic, gritty drama, laced with hope, humour and song.

About Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company

Somebody’s Daughter Theatre is a unique company, which has been working with the community of the disadvantaged for over 30 years, producing high quality theatre, music and art. In particular, the Company works with:

  • disadvantaged young people (particularly in regional and rural areas)
  • women in prison and after they have been released

The Company works regularly in collaboration with education, health and welfare agencies to establish community partnerships using the performing arts as a driver to break cycles of abuse, addiction and disengagement and to motivate more inclusive communities.

In 2000 the Company’s first official offspring, HighWater Theatre, was developed in Albury/Wodonga in partnership with Gateway Health and the Victorian Department of Education and Training. HighWater is a creatively led education program for young people outside the mainstream school system. Now in its fifteenth year, it is based at Gateway Island, on the banks of the Murray River.
