AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Salonika Bound' 'links Thessaloniki (Salonika) during WWII and Melbourne some fifty years later. Salonika was for centuries a multicultural city with a large number of Christians, Muslims and Jews, the latter driven there from Spain in the fifteenth century. A play about love and jealousy, guilt and redemption, it also resonates with the life-affirming power of music drawn from Greek Rembetika and Jewish Sephardic traditions.'
