About Candice Roberts

Hi! Welcome to my page and thanks for reading!

I am a 5th generation settler and artist based as an uninvited guest on the ancestral and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

I'd love to involve you in my process of creating a NEW SHOW!

THE CURE FOR FEAR is a physical theatrical/ digital arts exploration around the disconnection that occurs from trauma. In a world where the power holders would have us privatize and distrust our feelings in silence and obedience, how does one begin the process of decolonization and reconnection? What transformation happens within the psyche as a person emerges from despondency and disembodiment?

Without shaming, without lecturing or directly hitting the audience over the head with obvious themes, I'm curious about the ways in which I can reveal and reflect unconscious thinking patterns through humour and delight. How can one find lightness in the heaviest of topics? How can the subject matter be delivered in a way that surprises the experiencer with their own discoveries? 

I am excited about devising this full length show as live theatre AND as a digital representation. I'm gearing up for a visual feast, told through mask, costume, clown, puppetry and poetry of the body.

In the process I am reflecting on how colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy has affected my mind, how it influences the we think, and how we process the world. (By the way, It's a clown show! ...haha, gulp)

An intention of mine in the creation of THE CURE FOR FEAR is to support the normalization of "not being ok" and shine a light on developmental trauma- it's effects, and the ways in which it can be released from the body.

It is my hope to inspire conversation, and perhaps a spark that might lead someone on a path back to themselves. I'm excited to provoke good old fashioned belly laughs and offer a taste of awe-inspired spectacle.

I truly believe in the power of laughter to open people up to new perspectives.

ABOUT THE CHARACTER in THE CURE FOR FEAR:
Please meet Loretta, an endearing human who tries so hard to hide from her own unhappiness and discomfort. Her false positivity is apparent and her sadness is palpable, but I intend to explore the humour and tenderness that can arise in the delight, innocence and vulnerability in which the character is played.

Repressed and isolated Loretta feels a false sense of connection through the on-line world. By day she makes “how to videos'' for youtube but by night, we peek into her psyche as her dreams reveal her truth. She yearns to belong. She yearns to fly.

Loretta is a character who represents my own 10+ years of struggle with depression and unworthiness and my own call to continuously move beyond my comfort thresholds.

Charlie Chaplin was once quoted as saying: “To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it."

This is an experiment, and I am excited and terrified to share my process with any who are interested.

What you'll find here is a weekly process report which will include videos, photos and blog reports. I'm intending to figure out some sort of chat room here where you can share your experiences and feedback with me and others.

You do not have to become a patron to enjoy plenty of free content! I'll also be posting regularly to my website. www.candice-roberts.com

I'm learning as I go, so lets see what transpires!
