Clare Elizabeth Dea is a dynamic influencer working internationally as a performance artist, speaker and author. Extremely passionate about authentic expression, storytelling and connection, audiences are captivated by her presence and ability to move them deeply.
Working officially from the age of 16 in the Entertainment Industry, Clare started wearing a lot of masks on and off the stage. Hiding from the world that she was born with Poland's Syndrome, a rare congenital condition where her left hand side of her body is smaller than her right. Born without her left pec, her left breast never developed as a teenager. She was so ashamed of her body, she kept it a secret for many years.
In 2014, after a lot of soul searching, psychotherapy and personal development, she courageously shared her story publicly in memoir 'The One Breast Goddess - Transforming Shame Into Beauty.' This led to many interviews and speaking opportunities about owning your authentic voice, including an invitation from Tedx.
Also passionate about helping other creatives shine, Clare's entrepreneurial spirit led her to open various businesses including the 'Victorian Dance Studio,' holistic acting school 'Meisner Melbourne' and online talk show 'The Actor's Process.' This led her to be nominated for Telstra Business Woman Of The Year.
In 2018, she launched her first transformational theatrical experience 'Dropping The Mask.' A One Woman show with live band. A sold out season and rave reviews, Clare was inspired to create a new show to tour the world.
In September 2019, Clare launched a new show 'Devil Woman' at The Melbourne Fringe Festival. Delving into her story of having Poland's Syndrome in a comedy cabaret. Media caught onto her story and she started receiving publicity all over Australia. Channel 10, The Guardian, Herald Sun, Channel 9 Honey, The News Daily, The Melbourne Explorer all featuring her story. Then American Company 'Hasttag Stories' saw her story and together they crafted a video about her show, which received over 1 million hits in the first 24 hours.
Late 2019, a film that she starred in ‘Bodies’ played in Hollywood and New York at NYC Doc Fest.
She now work's regularly as an MC, speaker and performer at a range of events. Recently presenting at 'Freedom Festival,' 'Get Hacked, Get Hi,' 'Soul Star Festival' and 'Big Love Festival.'
She is also touring Australia with her new show 'The Spiritual Love Guru.' The tour began in Perth in February 2020 and will recommence at the end of the COVID - 19 lockdown period.
During the COVID lockdown period, Clare is working with creatives, helping them have a healthy relationship with money and package their work online. She is also excited to launch her online TV show 'The Bachelor In Quarantine.'
After having a taste of Clare’s magic, I invited her to speak at one of my events. Clare was able to craft an inspiring message for my audience and adapt to the energy in the room on the day. Her delivery was on point! She combined humour, examples, and vulnerable personal stories that connected her to the audience and made her point powerful and rememberable. She gave the audience immediately useful take-aways and her passion, honesty and presence have had her totally command the stage. My audience left feeling excited and motivated. So much so, I had her back to do it again! I highly recommend Clare as a dynamic, personable and transformational speaker.

A deeply entertaining experience that takes the audience on a journey into the exploration of our heart and ego, whilst providing us with a story line that is relatable, touching and authentically portrayed.
Clare has a wonderful voice and she shines as she shares her array of onstage talents. Her courage is palpable and her passion is infectious.
I highly recommend it. It is an experience, not just a musical."
Sarah Gale - Wearing Your Worth
Clare Elizabeth Dea was born with a rare syndrome called ‘Polands.’ Her left hand side of her body deformed, her left breast never developed.
Totally ashamed of her imperfections, she never talked about this with anyone for the first 28 years of her life. Living a lie and hiding her true self from the world.
Through a lot of personal development and performance training Clare has transformed her life.
In The One Breast Goddess - Transforming Shame Into Beauty... Clare will share her story and easy to use tools to transform your life. To turn your biggest challenges into the keys to unlocking your creative flow.
'What an eye-opening, heart-opening and body awakening experience. Through her playful curiosity, gentle acceptance and carefully selected, expansive exercises, Clare welcomes us back to our most generative, generous selves.
I've done a full University Degree in Creative Writing and never felt such a sense of authenticity between my mind, body, spirit and the sheet of paper in front of me.
If you want to tap into the wisdom of not only your mind, but your body, your soul and something that only the synergy of collaboration can create, I couldn't recommend Clare's works more.'

It is impossible to put into words how much I have learnt with Clare Dea. She really has helped me to make amazing changes to my life inside and outside of my career. Before beginning the training, I was doing work as a creative, but a large portion of the time felt like I was not reaching full potential or freedom in my work and often felt blocked. After beginning the training it wasn’t long before I started to feel big changes in my work, almost like gates opened inside me and allowed me to freely and joyfully tap into my creativity on many different levels. I am now working professionally as a songwriter and performance artist.
