Hi Moni,
“I had my childhood friend over to my place for dinner when I was 12 years old. My dear Mum kept on pouring food on her plate while all my family were in normal loud conversation. Afterwards she innocently asked me if “were you having a fight?” No, I said “that is how we normally talk!”

When I took my German Australian husband to Hong Kong for the first time, he went for a walk by himself while I had breakfast in bed. He came back and asked me why were there so many people quarrelling in the streets. I told him that’s how Cantonese is spoken. Loudly and with strong emphasis.

About the Author


Concerned that so few Chinese are performing artists and when they are, there is little opportunity for them to show case their talents . I created the ACT, the Australasian Chinese Theatre Company. The ACT’s inaugural production was From Little Things….devised, designed and written by Aurora Kurth and produced by Moni Storz in 2008. This was followed by Tegan Jones in Blues in the NIght. I wrote and produced Our Man in Beijing, my first inter cultural play and this was performed in 2011.
