Do you listen to the cogs that whir in your head, or the song of your heart that flutters in your chest? Teetering on the brink of absolute failure, love-sick Bobert discovers his heart to be more than he knew. From award winning creator Candy Roberts comes a whimsical brew of physical comedy and conundrum. Like Ginger Rogers meets Mr. Bean, Ideas Bobert dances with the absurd.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Ideas Bobert is an interactive theatre show featuring tap dance, clown, stop-motion animation and puppetry.
Meet Bobert, a shy and curious fellow with a puppet-bird for a heart that lives in his chest. He is a silent character that expresses himself through music, tap dance and physical comedy. Throughout the show he involves the audience in exploring absurd solutions to his mundane problems, but only after he learns to care for and listen to his heart does he find a sense of peace.
Central themes to IDEAS BOBERT! are CONNECTION, Self Expression and CREATIVITY.
