Greek Plays

14 Feb – 25 Feb

From the back streets of Athens, with its smoky nightclubs and seedy gambling dens, to the tumultuous waters of the Indian Ocean and to the ports and suburbs of Melbourne, Helen Yotis-Patterson’s epic Greek Trilogy takes us on a journey like no other, tracing the roots of migration to the backdrop of Laika and Entechno music.

Part one, “Eftihia” explores the unique philosophies of lyricist and compulsive gambler Eftihia Papgiannopoulou as she entertains a manifestation of Death in her living room.

Part two, “Taxithi” takes us on a journey by sea to help us understand the motivations and experience of migration.

Each piece stands alone but the full story is only revealed by their combined narratives. Don’t miss this extraordinary theatrical and musical experience!

Starring Katerina Kotsonis, Alkisti Pitsakis, Helen Yotis-Patterson and more, including Jacob Papadopoulos on bouzouki.


The double bill will be livestreamed on Sunday, Feb 25, 2pm (Eftihia) and 4pm (Taxithi).
