Artistic director Candice Roberts is 5th generation settler and artist based on the ancestral territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
She brings her passion for interweaving artistic disciplines such as physical theatre, music, mask, puppetry, clown and dance to create stories that explore the humour, the heartbreak, the trials and the tribulations of being a human in this world.
Cultivating anti-oppresive and intersectional understandings are important in Candice’s artistic research of creativity, decolonization and the connections between self expression, mental health and community.
She has toured all over North American, including New York and New Orleans with her award winning solo shows- LARRY, and IDEAS BOBERT.
Check out OOPSIE, a new multi-arts performance about mistakes and the art of failure. Available virtually or live with a supplemental theatre workshop.
