Taxithi – An Australian Odyssey

altFortyfivedownstairs is presenting the world premiere of Melbourne writer/performer Helen Yotis Patterson’s “Taxithi – An Australian Odyssey” from 2-20 March 2016.

Inspired by the untold true stories of women who migrated from Greece to Australia in the 1950s and 60s, “Taxithi” melds the passionate music of their homeland with poignant memories of their courageous journey. These stories resonate with the strength of women who made new lives, creating an indelible impression on a faraway country.

Directed by Petra Kalive with Musical Direction by Andrew Patterson, “Taxithi” features the outstanding talents of performers Helen Yotis Patterson (SBS’s RocKwiz), Artemis Ιωαννίδης (ABC’s A Beautiful Lie) and recent Green Room Award recipient Maria Mercedes (Sunset Boulevard, Love Never Dies and Master Class).
