The mixed race, gender-fluid and multi-talented Candy Bowers is launching a new exciting podcast, Multi-Hypho with support from Arts Centre Melbourne, Creative Victoria and bobb Creative.

The actor, comedian, writer and director has created this podcast to embrace multiplicity both on the mic and behind the scenes, celebrating diverse multi-hyphenates from across the creative industries.

The idea came to Bowers last year when she was in Los Angeles for a comedy screenwriting mentorship with Peter Saji, Black-ish writer and co-creator of Mixed-ish. During her LA stint, she participated in a podcast workshop.

Bowers is known to many Australian audiences for her sharp, vibrant and comic work including Sista She, Who’s That Chik?, Australian Booty and One The Bear. The NIDA graduate has also ruled the big top as ringmaster for Circus Oz, and recently joined MAV (Multicultural Arts Victoria) as Programming Manager.

Joining Bowers on the Multi-Hypho project is an exciting team including Christian Biko of bobb Creative, Colombian mixed media artist Karen Bravo, and Senuri Chandrani, an actor and theatre-maker of Sri Lankan Sinhalese heritage.

The first episode of Multi-Hypho will premiere on Tuesday, November 3; with subsequent episodes dropping each week till the end of the year. Arts Centre Melbourne has co-commissioned the first nine episodes of the Multi-Hypho series.
