In "Beyond Shadows" the Dreamtime Circus returned to present a vision of a circus in crisis. Though brimming with talent, the performers cannot reach their true potential as they are hobbled by their various forms of negativity, sometimes with disastrous consequences. The circus finds perspective and redemption when the performers are transported to a mystical realm where they confront the shadows lurking within themselves. The story unfolds in an elaborate show of aerial acrobatics, juggling, contortion, hooping, clowning, video, and shadow dance set to a mix of original music and locally produced dubstep courtesy of Full Melt Records.
BURNING MAN 2007
The Dreamtime Circus performed twice at the 2007 Burning Man Festival, and camped at the Red Nose District, a village of circus troupes from around the country. There, we performed “Between Worlds” (see below) in Cirque Berzerk’s giant big top to a raucous audience that spilled out from the tent and onto the playa.
Dreamtime also participated in the “Fire Conclave”, performing simultaneously with over 20 different fire troupes in the “Great Circle” around the giant wooden man just prior to its climactic burning. The theme of Burning Man in 2007 was “Green Man” and Dreamtime’s conclave performance incorporated this environmental theme. Corporate drones in trench coats and eerie neutral masks marched like zombies until elemental spirits guided them to a fiery cauldron. There, the drones underwent a physical and spiritual transformation, morphing into animals, exchanging their cell phones and brief cases for fire tools, and transcending from the unnatural state of modern humanity to a realm of animalistic nature. Following a series of fire dancing duets, the performance concluded with a dramatic convergence of performers and fire as they positioned themselves to create the shape of a giant flying fiery phoenix.
The Dreamtime Circus expanded its original “Between Worlds” production (see below) from three performers and a couple of fire safeties to a cast and crew of over 30 people. The expanded show included shadow dancers, aerialists, acrobats, freak show artists, and plenty of fire! Dreamtime transformed the Xenodrome into a circus fantasyland that included a midway with tarot card readers, face painting, musicians, clowns, and even a kissing booth. All the proceeds from the series of sold out shows in April and June helped to fund the “Circus for Change” India tour that began a few months later in October 2007.
This was the debut performance of the newly formed Dreamtime Circus. We performed “Between Worlds” in a San Francisco alley as part of the Mission Arts Performance Project. This show launched the Dreamtime Circus concept and created a buzz about our plans to bring a circus troupe to India.
“Between Worlds”, a three person theatrical fire performance, is the journey of a down and out clown that always dreamed of being a circus ringmaster. When he finds a magical coat and hat in a free box, his dream becomes reality, or at least in his mind. The clown realizes he has the power to turn ordinary things into fiery and fantastical circus creatures, until suddenly he wakes up from his dream and must choose his path in reality. Through this process, the clown discovers that “what happens between worlds, has the power to change worlds”.
