Fou Fou Ha! is a San Francisco-based cartoon performance troupe combining theater, dance acts, contemporary clowning, drag, burlesque and audience interactive play. We have been around for 13 years and have created 2 full-length shows throughout the years, including a theater run produced by the Brava Theater in 2010. We are embarking on a new show to be premiered in May 2014 titled “In Living Colors” which will incorporate thrilling dance numbers, a transformative theatrical journey a la Alice in Wonderland meets the Forbidden Zone, live projection mapping and an audience immersive experience. We are collaborating with projection artists, costume and set designers, sounds designers, the Klown from Trapeze SF as our DJ, Jamie DeWolf of Tourettes without Regrets and Jasper Patterson of the New Eccentrics as our co-hosts, and a cast of 15 stellar performers. We want to make a show that captures our potential at creating emotive, experiential theatrical transformation.
Your contribution will assist us in raising the bar. We know we can do more, we just need your help.
This show take the audience and cast on a journey from a repressed land of black and white through a portal into the Fou Dimension,where the characters get to know the different aspects of their personalities while owning their shadow and getting to know what limits them from their full potential, or full spectrum.
The funding would go towards: theater rental, set construction and materials, projection design and equipment, performer fees, lighting and tech crew, costumes, wigs, publicity and marketing materials, videographer and photographer, etc. $10,000 is the minimum of what we need and every dollar counts.
Risks and challenges
Some risks that we take relates to the very nature of live performance. Although we are experienced with creating a show and have a huge crew that will be assisting us in the creation of the many aspects, what will be seen in the end is really up to the muses of theater. It is never what you expect it to be, but we know that our potential to be more technologically developed is huge and we just need the financial support to make it more of a WOW!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
