“Finding Things” is a piece about being a tourist on stolen land, about travelling and creating as a group and the wildly neglected Australian 1947 marxist social realism sci-fi novel by the writer duo M. Bernard Eldershaw, consisting of the prolific authors Marjorie Bernard and Flora Eldershaw. The reading contains archival material found in the New South Wales Library Archives, whose team was very generous and helpful throughout my research there in March and April of this year.
