MICHAELA BURGER – A MIGRANT’S SON
Hellenic Hall

Direct from a sell-out season at Adelaide Cabaret Festival, A Migrant’s Son is a true story exploring migration from Greece to Australia during the 1930’s. This extraordinary new work conveys incredible historical events, brought to life through original compositions, creating a unique and touching account that is both hard-hitting and hilarious.
Written and performed by award-winning cabaret star Michaela Burger (Exposing Edith), this is a tale of a man – the son of a poor migrant – who defied all odds to rise above adversity. Featuring traditional Greek instruments and a community choir, the show explores racism, intolerance, judgement and the struggles presented by migration. It presents the audience with a deep appreciation of what Australia has offered migrants of past generations and today where audiences will be left with an elevated feeling of community-spirit and diversity.
