Larissa McGowan


In development with Performance & Art Development Agency and Vitalstatistix. Presented as part of Physical Forces with ACE Open

This solo, contemporary dance work explores the persona and characters of singer, actress, icon, and ultimate pop chameleon, Cher.

Cher breaks convention, challenges the system and somehow remains a constant. Choreographer, dancer and fan, Larissa McGowan, will use Cher’s iconic figure as a totem in order to flesh out the real possibilities of personal-political transformation.

Cher will be 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 reinvention.

Creative team

Larissa McGowan, Sam Haren and Steve Mayhew
