Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Part of

MELT Festival


Contemporary dance takes on camp cabaret in this solo tour de force inspired by ultimate pop chameleon, Cher.

Choreographer, dancer and fan, Larissa McGowan uses Cher’s iconic figure as a totem for exploring the reinvention of the universal aging female artist.

Cher is an inspired mash-up of gender, power and popular culture; a self-discovery of epic proportions; a headfirst dive into the artist’s path to immortality.

“After a nuclear holocaust, all that will be left are cockroaches and Cher.” Jimmy James
