Fans of Pink Floyd and Circus, To Unite in SF
It’s hard to believe this hasn’t happened before in San Francisco of all places, but someone has finally done it: this April 2020, you can watch an intricately choreographed circus show set to Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” That’s right, on April 3-5 2020 at Dance Mission Theatre, a live band will play the entire album faithfully from beginning to end. While you sit back and enjoy some of the best music ever written, you will simultaneously be wildly entertained by acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and more. It’s the ultimate sensory experience, and it’s SO San Francisco.
The great thing is that this production was 100% created by local Bay Area artists– not a big corporation like Cirque du Soleil– which means a lower ticket price AND an opportunity to support local artists. Produced by Bow & Arrow Circus Theatre Collective, the band was formed from members of local rock bands such as Midtown Social, Northern Waste, Music for the Apocalypse (responsible for those awesome David Bowie Birthday Bash events every January), Vandella and The Old Grey Whistle Test. The cast features a select crew of local circus people– Ash Rexford, Bethlayne Hansen, Clee, Jeremy Vik, Marie Cartier, Nina Sawant and Sean Heisler– all performers who you may have seen hanging from a ceiling or climbing stacks of chairs at Bay Area clubs, theaters and parks.
