Second theatre performance of ‘Twenty Two’ to be held in Melbourne

·

The Creative Drama & Arts Centre of the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) presents, for the second time, the theatre and music performance «ΕΙΚΟΣΙ ΔΥΟ» (‘TWENTY TWO’). 

It focuses on 1922, a year that constituted a historic landmark in Greeks’ collective consciousness from the tremendous effects of the Asia Minor Catastrophe and the Turkish-Greek War.

Sorrow songs, refugee testimonies, and extracts from two books and a play will take the audience on a journey from the peaceful Greek Asian Minor homes and shops in the early 1920s to an Athenian refugee shack in the mid-1950s. 

‘TWENTY TWO’ by Melbourne-based director Jeremy Artis premiered in December 2022. 

The second performance which is in Greek with English live-captions has since been enriched with additional acts and performers including the well-known Greek Australian actor Antonios Baxevanidis. 

Director: Jeremy Artis 

Cast: Antonios Baxevanidis, Athina Giannou, Giannis Lyris, Jeremy Artis, Ioanna Kothroula, Lemonia Shoina, Maria Bakalidou, Nicky Skouri, Pam Pollalis, Panos Apostolou, Syrmo Kapoutsi

Date: Saturday, 22 April, 7:30pm / Sunday, 23 April, 5:30pm

Venue: Clayton Community Centre (9/15 Cooke St, Clayton VIC) 

Tickets: $25 / Book here: (03) 9662 2722
