Artemis lived a solitary and sacrificial life. Andromeda and Cassiopeia were punished for being proud. Medusa was a monster. At least, that’s the way their tales are usually told.
A combination of songs and storytelling, ‘Goddess Era’ brings the women of Greek mythology into the modern day, giving them a new power and perspective.
Written and performed by Shannen Beckett and Sarah Kwong in their Adelaide Fringe debut, this is an original work about women who have been maligned, misunderstood, and mistreated. It’s about reclaiming your narrative, having your voice heard, and finding strength when you are told you have none. Join us for an intimate hour of story and song that celebrates the resilience and fortitude of goddesses all over.
