Ideas Bobert FAMILY SERIES SHOW

IDEAS BOBERT! FINDS HOPE IN THE FACE OF FAILURE THROUGH CLASSIC CLOWNING.

Vintage music, tap dance, preposterous situations and dreamy surrealism… A heart fluttering comedy for all ages.

Award-winning Vancouver-based clown artist Candice Roberts presents her clown tour de force IDEAS BOBERT at the Regina Fringe Festival. 
Bobert is a silent character a la Charlie Chaplin who has a little red bird for a heart. His story asks us, what happens if we are to deny our deepest dreams and desires? Teetering on the brink of absolute failure, love-sick Bobert discovers his heart to be more important than he knew. 

With vintage silent film styling, shadow puppetry, stop motion animation projections, dance, and live music, the world of Ideas Bobert is rich with magic and creativity. 
Like Ginger Rogers meets Mr. Bean on the Muppet show, Ideas Bobert dances with the hilarious and the absurd.

Ideas Bobert is whimsy and fiction, but for its creator Candice Roberts, it resonates with her truth. Common amongst many comedy artists, Candice has struggled with anxiety and depression. She claims that clown school saved her life. For her, the art of clowning encompasses such fundamental life skills as connection with oneself and community, creative communication, and becoming comfortable in the discomfort that is the unknown.

Clowning for her celebrates the multi-facets of what it means to be human. It is the investigation of what is absurd or confounding about ourselves and society. It is the sharing of vulnerability and honesty and the dissolving of shame through exposure.

Through Ideas Bobert, she hopes to inspire a deep belly laugh, a tender tear, and a reminder of how important it is to listen with our hearts and to be in touch with our creative selves.
