Goddesses Descending is an evolving project featuring costumes by Alicia Renadette and music by Tony Silva. First premiered under the Full Moon of Park Hill Orchard in September 2016, it is now in its second phase of existence. These feminist superheroes from another dimension rival, clash against misogynist elements, and educate two show girls on the powers of wisdom, sorcery and self awareness. Ultimately here to correct misinterpretations of the original myth, dancers in this Garden of Eve will thoroughly entertain you.
Excerpts of Goddesses have been performed at Cultural Chaos, Strut, and at Park Hill Orchard. For a peak at how Marvela (Goddess of Flight) lights up Strut performers click on this video by Kbest Productions.
Stay tuned for 2017 Performance dates.
