Aphrodite and the Invisible Consumer Gods

“…a rush of goddess energy, radiating confident sexuality…” – Broadway World

★★★★– The Advertiser
★★★★ – Weekend Notes
Welcome to our ridiculous modern digital world, where chocolate gives you an orgasm and sports cars give you sex appeal.
In this collage of satire, physical theatre, dance and audience interaction; Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, time travels to Adelaide 2018. She's a sassy diva who cunningly entices more followers into worshipping her.
However, constantly being shamed by the media and society for not being beautiful or slim enough to be a worthy human being, we see her buy into consumerism to try to keep up with our unrealistic ideal of beauty. She eventually transforms from a powerful goddess into to a woman who wants to be invisible.
Will Aphrodite be totally consumed by consumerism or will she reclaim her goddess given power?
