FOR TIX TO OUR PORTLAND SHOW JULY 24TH AT ALBERTA ROSE THEATER CLICK BELOW.
One show in Portland ONLY with lots o' fun kickstarter rewards after show during Saloon Ensemble's Set ! -not to be missed.
A must see for all those that love to laugh and created for those that need to most.
After performing sold out shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles, DreamAwake Prod.'s belly aching physical comedy, SIMPLE MATTERS hits Edinburgh !
SIMPLE MATTERS is
A full length highly theatrical physical comedy, that has been invited to perform in one of the most prestigious venues in one of the largest theater festivals in the world, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This means that in just one month, we get to make approximately 2 -3 thousand people almost pee their pants with laughter, and hopefully get picked up by many of the European Touring Directors guaranteed (by our fantastic producer) to see our show and bring SIMPLE MATTERS to a worldwide career!
But, it's going to cost us over $30,000 to pull this off. As you may have seen in our video, we are doing everything we can to raise this money and our Kickstarter Campaign only asks for half of the money we have to come up with so please don't be shy...sign on to one of our super fun rewards and help bring more laughter to the world ! And just know, we really won't be too upset with you at all if we somehow go over $15,000.
“Confusion makes me uncomfortable. Just go with Simple Matters" ~Lenny Kravitz
For a sneak peak, watch the teaser here.
Without red noses, five clowns from four countries take you on a journey through the miraculous unraveling of everyday life, dancing on the ridge between the absurdity of our current reality and a really good time. It is entirely ensemble created and directed by alumni from Cirque Du Soleil, The Dell’Arte School, and The San Francisco Clown Conservatory.
In times of social upheaval, when faced with economic, political, and spiritual uncertainty, historically society has always turned to the clown for perspective. Well... here we are ! Sorry if we're a little late.
nOah VeiL, Vladimir Levitansky, Martina Oskarsson, Kate Gibson, and Meg Russell
DreamAwake Prod. brings together the surrealism of today's reality through an unrelenting love of folly.

WHERE DOES YOUR $$ GO, YOU ASK?
Well. . . First off, there areFlights for five clowns (or slapstick surrealists, as we prefer to be called) then there's the big time Production Company's Fees for one of the four "Edinburgh Super Venues". Festival Fees, Publicity and Marketing, Modest Accommodations, Shipping our Shithouse (or pOrtal pOtty, as it prefers to be called)and other props, Rehearsal space, Stage/Light/Sound Tech, and hopefully, a bit of terrible scottish cuisine.
"That's been one of my mantras - focus and Simple Matters. Simple can be harder than complex." -Steve Jobs
