November is going to be Koraly’s Dimitriadis month. Koraly Dimitriadis is a Greek-Australian poet, actor and director. Her play, “Good Greek Girl,” will be performed at La Mama Theatre from November 5 to 7. In this film she explores the space between theater, language, film and music.
On November she will also adapt four of her poems into films. One of these features her mentor, award-winning writer Christos Tsiolkas. She will launch one of her short films in the 20th Delphi Bank Greek Festival which starts on Thursday in Melbourne.
Dimitriadis said that her career took off after her self-published Love and F**k Poems, a verse novel about sexual repression and liberation. She has proved that poetry is still alive and kicking. “The films have taken on a life of their own. I am hoping to spread them around the world. It’s exciting that poetry can move from the page to the stage, to the screen.” She stated.
