What is Intertwined?

Intertwined is a new Australian theatre work written by Lusi Austin who also composed the original score.


At its heart, it is the story of three people from entirely different backgrounds and worlds. Contemporary, historic and ancient cultures collide in this one act show.

A young teen girl, an Australian soldier and an Aboriginal man all find themselves with one thing in common: Cowra.


Cowra is the place the TEEN GIRL is taken to on holiday with her father, partly to deal with the passing of her mother.

Cowra is where our AUSTRALIAN SOLDIER served during WWII. He represents the many Australian soldiers who came here during the days of the infamous Cowra POW Breakout and tells their stories.

Our ABORIGINAL MAN tells the stories of his elders who were alive at Erambie during the time of the Breakout. 


Through twelve scenes and 8 musical numbers, the actors and the small chorus ensemble show how their lives overlap and asks if the example given to us in the Japan-Australia relationship can inspire future generations.


The play asks if we can acknowledge past hurts to our Indigenous community in order to help us move forward in a way that promotes peace as a nation united.

‘Intertwined’ uses dialogue including first-hand accounts (from Down there with me on the Cowra Mission Professor Peter Read), musical interludes and visual displays in order to raise questions rather than assign blame.

Lusi has worked closely with Aboriginal Elders and Cowra's wider Aboriginal community, along with the Cowra Breakout Association, to present an authentic account of life in Cowra in 1944, as seen through the lens of Intertwined's lead characters.
