AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Weaving Greek mythology, religion and the study of grammar, Stamatia X is the story of a Greek-Australian girl whose parents make the monumental decision to re-migrate "like birds flying backwards" to Greece.

'The year is 1973 and a military junta is in power. This modern Greek tragedy subverts notions of family, culture and gender. A yiayia in a swimsuit, a blasphemous Greek Orthodox priest, a corrupt regime. An explosive epic.' (Publication summary)
