“I threw a stone behind me and I didn’t look back”
Taxithi (the Greek word for journey) is a play, with music, telling the stories of the Greek women who migrated to Australia by ship in the 1950s and 60s.
The writer spoke to more than twenty women, asking them three simple questions: Why did you leave? What was the journey like? What happened after you arrived?
These conversations are woven together to create compelling, sometimes heartbreaking stories combined with beautiful, nostalgic music from the era, performed live by the three actors and musicians.
