AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The big boss god Zeus and his entourage of gods-in-training, goddesses and godettes, hit the streets to see what Sydney, notorious Olympic and Millennium City, is all about. And what a sight they see! Queens on King St, Dykes in Leichhardt, Bi's on Bondi. The gods ask themselves, 'Surely with all this waxing, plucking and buffing going on the Olympics have returned to their origins and everyone will compete naked!' So, what can the gods do but change sex at will and make sport cavorting at Mardi Gras. Unable to resist this luscious possibility, Centaurs chase scene queens, the Fates follow fashion victims, and mere mortals are mobbed by Muses in this capricious, all-singing all-dancing romp. But will anyone notice? Will anyone care? It's a long way from Athens to Olympic Sydney but when it comes down to it, the gods may get their ecstasy, but they're still only tourists.'
