Phi Theodoros aka the Ukulele Dream Girl has been making waves with her poignant shows that have made appearances at Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Cabaret Fringe, and Feast Festival over the last year and a bit. Now, this talented singer, storyteller, and performer will be returning back to this year's Feast Festival with a new show - Love At A Distance.
Exploring the different perspectives around the idea and concept of 'love', when it reaches the point beyond the honeymoon or summer love phase, this will be one of Theodoros' most personal cabaret show yet. Given how in today's day and age, people prefer to profess their love on social media and limit their conversations in-person to a minimum, Theodoros will channel the medium of love through a long-distance relationship, a care for those with mental health issues, and a love of a refugee for their homeland. It taps into the types of love that may not be shared as extensively, but possesses an equal (if not higher) level of impact that feeling and sharing this form of love may have on the individuals being portrayed in Theodoros' show. Theodoros promises to take her audience on an honest yet relatable poetic journey that will delve into the good (and bad) aspects of being in love through six stories, one of which will relate directly back to her own experiences.
If you've never been to Theodoros' shows, prepare to be pleasantly surprised - her tenacity to break down stigmas around topics that may be considered 'taboo' is inspiring and admirable.
Theodoros' short but sweet tour with her show Love At A Distance will kick off in Adelaide at Sparkke on Whitmore, before making its way to Victor Harbor at The Island Cafe on Granite Island. Thanks to the Government of South Australia, the show on November 14 will be Auslan-Interpreted, in a bid to encourage new audiences to connect.
