LARRY wants to prove that he can be “woke” enough for an empowered woman of his desires, but in a moment of accidental transcendence, uncovers a startling surprise in his psyche. A complex, daring and hilarious portrait of a hoser’s foray into feminism.
With dance, clown and physical theatre, award-winning artist Candice Roberts uses her alter ego LARRY to explore her experiences growing up as a female in rural B.C. in the 1980s. Culled from the socially dominant, homophobic male archetypes that surrounded her during her upbringing, Larry helps her examine gender stereotypes, feminism, gender fluidity—and makes people laugh.
