OMNICIRCUS ROBOTIC CABARET PRESENTS A GALA BENEFIT FOR THE MAKING OF A
LONG-FORM VIDEO OF NEW ANTI-WAR, ANTI-POVERTY PROTEST SONGS
FRIDAY JULY 23 AT 8 P.M. $20 suggested donation
Fans of the OmniCircus Heavy-Mental Group will want to attend our benefit auction and performance to raise money to produce a long-form music video. This video will explore themes addressing the war in Iraq and here in the ghetto. The fundraiser will be held at OmniCircus, located at 550 Natoma St. in San Francisco. Suggested donation is $20 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
The show starts at 8 p.m., with OmniCircus’ performance ensemble, DeusMachina, showcasing new material. Videos, computer animation, dance and robotic interactions will also take place. An additional attraction will be an auction of original art by Frank Garvey and other OmniCircus members, and bidding for a dinner-date with one of the Fallen Angels of the OmniCircus.
Headquartered in San Francisco’s SoMa district, OmniCircus is the premier center for surreal cabaret and multimedia performance. Founded in 1988 by composer-artist Garvey, OmniCircus shows integrate live avant-fusion music by house band DeusMachina, with dancers, actors, life-sized computer-controlled robots and midi-controlled virtual-reality puppets, whose voices are powered in real-time by live actors.
