“After a nuclear holocaust, all that will be left are cockroaches and Cher.” - Comedian 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 ageing 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.

“She (McGowan) unexpectedly breaks out of character towards the end of the piece, and those who know her recognise in Larissa McGowan a strong, proud woman with guts and stamina who gets by just fine. And furthermore, after 20 years on stage, she is still packing them in.”
