Watch video: CHIKA: A Documentary Performance on video

CHIKA: A Documentary Performance is a multi layered theatre production with documentary photography, interviews, archival video, original music and choreography. It is contemporary story telling, that crosses the boundaries of art and documentary.
It tells the story of Chika Honda, a Japanese woman who spent a decade in Australian jails for a crime she always insisted she did not commit. She was one of a Japanese tour group who were arrested, convicted and sentenced to jail for importation of heroin in1992. She was released on parole and deported from Australia in 2002. Despite efforts by her lawyers to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, her name has yet to be cleared. The case is commonly known as the Melbourne Case.
