Michaela Burger - A Migrant's Son

21 Jul - 21 Jul
Cabaret powerhouse performer Michaela Burger brings her award-winning show A Migrant’s Son to NOOSA alive! for one night only – Sunday 21 July at The J. 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 that are brought to life through original compositions and local community choirs, creating a unique and touching account that is both hard-hitting and hilarious. Written and performed by award-winning cabaret star Michaela Burger, this is a tale about a man, the son of a poor migrant, who defied all odds and rose above adversity. From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy and opening a chain of discount supermarkets, his unrelenting determination to build a successful life is comical and dramatic; as he pushes through like an unstoppable force, willing to sacrifice everything for his family. Described by Kate Ceberano as “an asset to the cabaret community”, Burger is the recipient of the award for Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2016 and been nominated for a Helpmann Academy for Best Cabaret Performer 2016.
