Original traveling circus theater exploration of the subconscious. Shows and free art workshops in under-served communities.
We are a group of artists, circus performers, musicians, poets, puppeteers, dreamers and doers who have devised a theater performance interspersed with circus acts. In our original script, The Night Captain, we explore the sea of the subconscious through witty repartee, daring physical acts and whimsical puppets and shadow puppetry.
The stage for the show is a 25 foot ship facade built on the back of a trailer bed. Our crew will tow this mobile ship and aerial rig to diverse communities along the west coast of Washington, Oregon and California. Offering free workshops for youth in various communities will allow us to start a dialogue of creativity with the people we meet along the way. Our workshops will include acrobatics, music, knot tying, puppetry and other crafts. The crafts and props made in these workshops will also make an appearance in the show, just one of the many interactive aspects of The Night Captain.
Each performance will be accompanied by our live band, The Endorfins. Their original score and depth of musical talent promises to inspire. Ultimately we want to inspire and be inspired through a style of travel centered around giving back to community.
