Larissa McGowan - Cher
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre in association with Vitalstatistix
World Premiere | Australia
Choreographed and performed by award-winning choreographer, dancer and fan, Larissa McGowan; Cher explores the persona and characters of the ultimate pop chameleon in this contemporary dance piece.
A mash-up of gender, power and pop culture, Larissa uses Cher as an icon for transformation and aging as a female artist. A self-discovery of epic proportions; a headfirst dive into the artist’s path to immortality.
McGowan is a choreographer who refuses to shy away from the uncomfortable. Jordan Beth
