    Based on Plato's The Symposium, Agapi & Other Kinds of Love is a Modern Hip-hop Opera embedded in the Ancient Greek storytelling tradition.


    Greek-Australian poet and rap artist Luka Lesson's reputation as one of Australia's best storytellers shines as he takes us on a journey through the Ancient Greek kinds of love.


    Agapi & Other Kinds of Love begins with Socrates telling a banquet of friends everything he learned from a mysterious lover named: Diotima. The gods then take us on a journey - collapsing time and space to arrive in modern day Athens, where the two reincarnations of the Ancient lovers fall in love (again) in the midst of a riot.


    Self-love, erotic love and familial love all collide with statues of Aphrodite, Molotov cocktails and the Parthenon steps.


    Agapi & Other Kinds of Love shows us how love prevails despite the trials and tribulations of the ages.


    "Luka never fails to delight in this vibrant and beautiful dive into love"

    ~Omar Sakr
