The Creative Drama & Arts Centre of the Greek Community of Melbourne 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.
'One night we were citizens in our homeland and the next day we were refugees begging.'
That simple but powerful refugee statement diachronically depicts the dramatic moments of all those who forcibly leave their beloved lands for an estranged unknown place.
But this could also be the foundation stone for a fresh beginning in the new land, a drop of hope.
