ABOUT CANDY

tLVOrjbA.jpeg

Candy Roberts is a Canadian theatre artist and fifth-generation European-Canadian settler based on the Unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səlílwətaɬ(Tsleil- Waututh), and xwməθkwəyəm (Musqueam) territories, also known as Vancouver, BC. 

 

Her original works encompass physical theatre, music, and clown to investigate the humor and heartbreak of our social and human conditions. As a somatic practitioner and an avid researcher of creativity, her works explore the connections between self-expression, mental health, and community. 


Her international touring productions include award-winning solo works; LARRY, a “daring, provocative and hilarious” gender-bending feminist comedy, IDEAS BOBERT, a ridiculous family show in the likes of Charlie Chaplin and OOPSIE, a physical comedy about the ART OF FAILURE!

 

Candy Roberts is also the Artistic Director of CANDY BONES THEATRE an innovative Theatre for Young Audiences company which devises and tours immersive, and original theatre for families and young audiences. 

For Candy, art is not just a practice it is a way of life. Along with creating hilarious and magical multimedia theatre productions, she assists people who desire support in connecting with their own creative sparks. In 2014 she received the Mayor's Arts Award for her work in community building through creativity. This program was implemented within the BC health system for folks in recovery with addiction and mental health issues.
