Ideas Bobert

January 29 @ 4:00 pm PST

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.
