A stunning and fantastical epic journey whisking us from a living room to the high seas! Equal parts hilarious and touching, this highly skilled physical comedy is the unforgettable story of a feisty granny battling dementia who must fight to hold onto her memories and very existence against the forces threatening to wash it all away.

As the culmination of the San Francisco Circus Center's artist residency and as her theater company Bad, Bad Bunny's first production, award-winning actress and comedian Amelia Van Brunt presents a solo exploration of memory, life and death, loneliness, and the elements. In The Blue Of Evening tells the hilarious and heartbreaking story of a battle with dementia using the skills and forms of clown, Commedia dell'Arte, surrealism, and the shock of grotesque physical theatre. Alone in her home, we meet a woman named Mona, who is fighting to hold onto her memories and very existence against the forces threatening to wash it all away.
