Karagiozis in Australia - Karagiozis the New Migrant by Miltos Moutafidis and directed by Stavros Economidis
A comedy, presented by the Hellenic Art Theatre and the Greek Festival of Sydney
The Greek crisis has led to a new wave of migration to Australia, and among the ‘new migrants’ is everyone’s favourite barefoot, hunch-backed folklore hero — Karagiozis. He has come with his family seeking work and a better future.
To his surprise, all his old friends have also made the move. He lands a job (thanks to his mate Hatziavatis) working for a wealthy Greek-Australian.
One of his duties is to protect his boss’s daughter and keep her away from Alexander (the Great). She will marry the man he selects... or will she?
Actors bring shadow-theatre characters to life on stage.
