Goddess: The Elizabeth Burton Story

Date: 22 Mar 2021

Goddess is a cabaret tapestry of the life of the legendary Elizabeth Burton – as told and teased by the Goddess herself.

Burton’s life mantra is Masticate, Masturbate, Meditate, Mobility!

With this mantra Burton and her collaborators Aaron Manhattan and Betty Grumble cast her memories and dreams, grit and glamour, radical pleasure and goddess energy across the stage in lessons of self love and resilience all from the source of the Buddhist Stripper herself.

Seventy-three years young, Burton’s practice has taken her around the world. A tour during the Vietnam War, resident Les Girl, company member alongside Michael Matou in The Sideshow Theatre Company and defiant Motherhood. She continues to work as a teacher, mentor, performer and hairdresser to the homeless naming herself resident ‘Ol’ Tart of Surry Hills.’

Join us as Elizabeth guides us with her experience, body and light, showing us how to be with ourselves and for ourselves.
