"SHOW HO" Special Guest Clown Performance

  • Z Space 450 Florida Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Amelia will be performing as special guest following Sara Moore's "SHOW HO!" performance for ONE NIGHT only, accompanied by the CLUBFOOT ORCHESTRA. Amelia will perform to the orchestra playing from Buster Keaton's "Go West."

"Please come celebrate the entire clown community and my recent, very humbling and exciting appointment as the new Director of The Clown Conservatory here at San Francisco's Circus Center. As a clown who honors the incredible history of circus & physical comedy in our fair city I am over the moon with pride and excitement to "pied piper" this new era of Human Cartooning.

In SHOW HO I play an entire circus! It's mad fun and a real character-morphing smackdown. This is the last time I will be doing this show and it's ONE NIGHT ONLY, you guys. So please come!

Tickets are $20-$35 and you can find them here: http://www.zspace.org/new-work/show-ho

I'm dedicating this performance of SHOW HO to the fantastic family of San Francisco Clowns to which many of us belong. The Bay Area has long been the nucleus and soul of new American circus/vaudeville, launching the careers of many brilliant clowns like Bill Irwin, Geoff Hoyle, Joan Mankin, Larry Pisoni, Diane Wasnak, Robin Williams and many others. SHOW HO is a love letter to the resilience of humor through loss; with the many heartaches befalling our clown community in recent years, SHOW HO is testament to the inspiring legacies of those San Francisco clowns who have gone on, and to the spirited passion of those who remain.

Members of CLUBFOOT ORCHESTRA with Richard Marriott are kindly playing some of their score to Buster Keaton's "Go West."

And the wonderful Beaver Bauer will be displaying three of her designs for characters from THE SUPERS in the lobby!

And there will be PIE and DONUTS and BOOZE.

And lots of good cheer and merry-making before, in the middle and afterwards too."
