The Chronicles of Olympus and Breeze Entertainment proudly present The Goddesses, a theatrical journey into Greek mythology featuring Australia’s most dynamic dancers, singers and acrobats. 

The Goddesses tells the foundation story of the ancient Greek goddesses through dance, music and stunning acrobatics. It’s Greek mythology like you’ve never seen before, taking you on a theatrical journey through Mount Olympus where you get introduced to each of the female deities. 

This original, Melbourne-made show puts commercial dance in the spotlight, highlighting the cast’s versatility in a range of dance styles from ballet to hip hop and contemporary. It’s an opportunity for Australian audiences to experience commercial dance on an epic scale usually only found in Las Vegas or on television. 

With the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the live entertainment industry, Melbourne-based creator Bree Kent has moved heaven and earth to bring this show to life. With her regular commercial dance and choreographic work on hold indefinitely, Kent channelled her creative energy into writing, producing and choreographing The Goddesses. The show is inspired by Kent’s Greek heritage and driven by her passion for supporting other dancers to build a professional career in Australia. She is enormously proud that The Goddesses generates meaningful work and new opportunities for an industry that has struggled so much over the past two years. 

The Goddesses’ all-female cast features 13 of Australia’s most talented entertainers: international vocalist and former contestant on The Voice Australia, Cassie Mciver as Gaia, Mother Earth; professional dancer from Dancing with the Stars Australia Alexandra Vladimirov as Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth; commercial dancer and model Bianca Dimattina as Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Sexual Pleasure; international award-winning cellist Steph Stamopoulos as Styx, a deity and river that forms the boundary between Earth and the Underworld; commercial dancer Jordan Elise as Medusa, the most beautiful mortal to walk Mount Olympus; dancer and singer Lizzie Jenkins as Artemis, Goddess of Hunting; aerialist, circus artist and dancer Aleisha Manion as Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and War and Selene, Goddess of the Moon; Dance Captain Carmelina Tammaro; ensemble Tara Bajan, Rachael Peters, Kate Sinclair, Jordan Bartolo and Nicolette Tayla.

Original costume design is by Bree Kent and creation by Tamara Keane, who also creates costumes for RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under star Art Simone. 

The Goddesses will be presented in Melbourne at Meat Market – The Cobblestone Pavilion from 3 – 6 February. For tickets and more information, visit
