    As part of the retrospective exhibition for Christella Demetriou (which continues until May 30, 2019 at Darebin Arts Centre, cnr Bell St & St Georges Rd, Preston, Vic. 3072) a small group of friends put together a poetry event with poetry they loved. On Monday, May 13, at Ithaca house, Level 2, 329 Elizabeth St., Melbourne, at 7:00 pm, academic Nick Trakakis will present his translation of major contemporary Greek poet Tassos Leivaditis, whose poems have been set to music by Mikis Theodorakis; some of the most polemic poems of Vassos Lyssarides, legendary leader and honorary president of the Socialist Party of Cyprus, will be read by Andrea as a tribute on his 99th birthday; Edward Caruso will speak about his new poetry collection ‘Blue Milonga’, which travels across the natural and political landscape of Argentina and Chile; academic and activist Garry Foley will present Andrea Demetriou’s poetry book, ‘The Inconsolable Clock’, which expands from the wars for resources to the existential dead end, and is introduced by Christos Tsiolkas; and finally poems by Christella Demetriou, translated by her friend Pavlos Andronikos, academic and composer, will be read by himself and Domenico de Clario, artist-curator, Chair of Arts Mildura, founder of the Museum of Innocence.
