Josipa Draisma presents award-winning cabaret LJUBIČICA – WILD VIOLET as part of The Melbourne Cabaret Festival in June 2016…

Ljubičica – Wild Violet is a beautiful and emotional story about Josipa’s mother’s migration to Australia from Croatia. A poor Croatian village girl is called to a new life in far away Australia by a father she has longed for, but can barely remember. In this exuberant cabaret Josipa shares the deeply personal, but universal tale of her mother’s migrant experience.

Ljubičica – Wild Violet is the story of this country, it’s everyone’s story. It has already recieved some rave reviews.

“Rowston & Draisma have humanised the migrant experience at a time we need it most” – Syke On Stage

“Josipa Draisma is captivating, singing with passion and poise, she achieves a hypnotic mastery over the audience” –Theatre Now
