Sugar Bear


  • POV Gallery 2547 Fair Oaks Avenue Altadena, CA, 91001 United States (map)

SUGAR BEAR is "idiot show" meets installation art. 
Conceived and performed by Claire Woolner Grace Lusk Meera Koombhani & Lucia Brizzi
Directed by John Gilkey
In collaboration with visual artist Allison Honeycutt

The first all-female Wet the Hippo production, exploring the concept of "WOM" - womanhood/girlhood - domesticity/wildness - friends/frenemies. 

This is comedy performance, fine art exhibition, improvised absurdity, poetic vulnerability and, as it is written by women, unavoidably feminist. We wander through the world of Sugar Bear to do something WOM have been reconciling for ages - climbing a mountain to scream "I have no apologies", and answering the phone to say "I'm so sorry".

WE'RE THE MARINA AMBRAMOVICS OF COMEDY- Lucia
I'VE NEVER HAD AN AHA MOMENT- Grace
HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU KNOW- Claire
IS ANYONE USING THIS ONION AS AN EXCUSE FOR CRYING?- Meera
