Larissa McGowan


Presented by Vitalstatistix in association with Adelaide Festival Centre for Adelaide Cabaret Festival

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

Contemporary dance takes on camp and 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.

Created by an all-star team of South Australian artists, this Australian premiere is not to be missed.
