Abstract

Looming the Memory' is a thinly disguised memoir of one man's struggle growing up with his heart in two parts of the world - Greece and Australia. It's a show for anyone who has travelled from across the world to make a new home or who have parents who did. Told in English with a splash of Greek, Looming the Memory is a journey into myth, memory, and identity performed through powerful story-telling and physical theatre. Eighteen characters including Greek grandmothers, some ghosts, and a chicken are bought to life in an honest, sensitive and often comic 75 minutes of engaging theatre. This solo show explores the idea that our family stories play an integral part in shaping who we are. Performed at Doncaster Secondary College Theatre, 29/05/10 @ 7pm and 12 international and national venues/festivals over 5 years.
