Taxithi 2: Metanastes – The Immigrants
Helen Yotis Patterson has interviewed dozens of Greek and Cypriot men and women who migrated to Australia in the 50s, 60s and 70s and has written an incredible array of stories based on the personal experiences. Their stories vary from factory workers, business men and risk takers to young lovers and survivors of war. Their hard work, their joys and heartbreaks are accompanied once again by the soulful Greek music of their time.
These true stories are both heartbreaking and exhilarating, capturing in so many ways what it means to be Australian.
Taxithi 2: Metanastes – The Immigrants is a rehearsed reading and fundraiser.
