Goddesses of Jazz
Touring as part of the 2023 Touring Services Program
Maude Davey and Ruth Katerelos join forces with concert pianist Graham Clark to take a spin around some songs made sensational over the decades by the likes of Nina Simone, Judy Garland, Piaf, Billie Holiday, Madeleine Peyroux, Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee and more.
Goddesses of Jazz are the women who made our spirits soar when they sang. These women made us feel like we could be more than decorative, whose songs drove themselves into our hearts. When we say Jazz we mean the magic that happens between performers and the audience – the rhythms and polyphonies that come from being together in a room and the improvisation that arises between musicians and is driven by the energy of the room.
Solo, and together, these performers will captivate you with their songs and stories of life, love and connection.
They might even dance for you!
Maude Davey is a Helpmann nominee and Green Room award winner for Melancholia and Anthem, while Ruth Katerelos has performed on local stages for decades, including in Bloom, From Whore to Eternity, and most recently, Mrs. Robinson at La Mama.
