Description:
Its like SBS in there. Aunt Azza comes out of customs, and mum transforms. Ultra Arab. Instantaneous. One minute shes cooking Frank steak and chips, next thing shes asking me where to buy goat. Frank wont eat goat. Aspiring archaeologist Sophie left home when she was only 20, much to the shame of her traditional Jordanian mother. Six years later, losing sleep and petrified by the judgement of her visiting mad Arab Aunty Azza, Sophie is forced to lie about her life, her career and the existence of her Aussie partner. Worst of all is the fear that shes also lying to herself. Looking deep into the heart of Sydney and beyond, Jump for Jordan unpacks the experience common to countless second-generation Australians of being caught between two cultures. Sifting through shifting layers of past and present, farce and fantasy, its one womans mad, messy excavation of her own history, and her attempt to piece together the broken bits of her identity. Donna Abelas Jump for Jordan took out the Griffin Award in 2013, wowing the judges with its vitality and ambition.
