STUDENT BODY

by Alana Valentine

Kai Chai is a student who has come to Australia for a university education. So have Fon and Aditya and Song Yi. All of them are seeking an encounter with the freedoms and opportunities provided by a Western democracy - sexual freedom, political freedom and personal self-determination. ///Student Body\ is an intriguing, surprising and rollicking insight into the experiences of four international students as they each encounter their own terrifying and seductive dragons - immigration officials, home-stay mothers, University counsellors and Australian lovers. Not only is Australia a very different place than they expected, the opposition from the freedoms they seek come as much from the cultural baggage they are all carrying as it does from their current residence. What will they sacrifice to secure a skilled migration visa? What, or who, among them can threaten that possibility? As they play a high-stakes game of chance with their futures, who will care if they stay or go?
