One the Bear
This intensely vivid dystopian production invites audiences into a chaotic celebrity-crazed world that closely parallels our own.
The story’s hero is a bear called One (Candy Bowers) and her best friend Ursula (Nancy Denis). The pair spend their days getting up to mischief and dreaming of being free from oppression. When One is given the chance to speak for her community, she must face a self-reckoning. Pushing the boundaries of conventional theatre, One the Bear illuminates the stage with neon projections and politically charged performances.
Created by real-life sisters Candy Bowers and Kim Busty Beatz Bowers of Black Honey Company, the two have been creating award-winning innovative theatre for over 15 years.
One the Bear is part of Big World, Up Close, a series of six compelling works from Australia and across the globe that strives to reframe our view of the world through the power of bold storytelling. Packages available.
