Ange Lavoipierre Final Form

Crowded presents

Ange Lavoipierre Final Form

Two parts fever dream and one part personality quiz, Final Form takes aim at the desperate lengths we go to in our eternal quest to be liked. It’s a meditation on being everything to everyone, replete with ghosts, strawberries, a cello, and the teachings of 1950s sociologist Erving Goffman.

Final Form loops unexpected 20th century wisdom over 21st century life, to repeatedly and obsessively ask: is it possible to stop editing ourselves to please other people?

Ange Lavoipierre is a newcomer to comedy, touring a split bill to Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. She’s also the longstanding cello accompanist to the beloved improv duo, The Bear Pack (Carlo Ritchie & Steen Raskopolous) and the co-host of the ABC’s daily news and current affairs podcast, 'The Signal'.

Expect 'the visceral and the absurd' (Sydney Morning Herald) from Ange Lavoipierre in her debut solo hour.

'Lavoipierre deploys both the visceral and the absurd in a way that never let the audience get too comfortable. Her drollness and self-deprecation wring laughter from stories that could in other hands have instilled horror.'  Sydney Morning Herald  

Directed by Ben Jenkins (Tonightly, The Feed, The Checkout, The Chaser and more).
