Theatre company, founded in 2016 in Calgary Alberta as a rebranding of Urban Curvz. Handsome Alice is “a project and performance based theatre company supporting female perspectives through creative narratives that fuse life with art. [It acts] as a catalyst for activating the female voice through performances and events that empower both artists and the community, reaching across socio-cultural landscapes” (website). Current Artistic Producer is Meg Farhall.
The inaugural production under the new name was Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) directed by Kate Newby. In September, 2016, it produced The Tall Building by Edmonton playwright Jill Connell (dir. Denise Clarke) — a "brittle, surreal, funny meditation on city life, in a dystopian world where people live atomized lives that are piled on top of one another, even as they’re completely separated from one another" (Stephen Hunt. https://thehalfstep.live 13 Sept 16).
Handsome Alice has partnered with Mount Royal University’s department of diversity and human rights and the Calgary Sexual Health Centre to create an opportunity for female MRU students to share their stories through the inVISIBLE Project.
