I generally have mixed feelings about clowns but am willing to make an exception for these delightful weirdos.

Pleased to present Maya Lane, artistic director of Bay Area dance/circus group Fou Fou Ha!

We discuss the age-old vaudevillian tradition of performance being a catalyst for joy, embracing the shadow self, the development of community, and the struggles of maintaining a livelihood for the creative forces that bring these experiences to the world!

*Please excuse the static- we are busy, remote-style people.

In honor of George Romero

An interesting fact: One of George Romero’s favorite movies, which he said changed his life, was The Tales of Hoffmann from 1951. He said it made him want to make movies. I love it as well and always felt more connected to Romero having known that.

This is for George, to make him happy and to remember who he was, not just his adventurous films. The full version of Hoffmann was hard to find, so here’s a trailer. If anyone finds it please post in the comments?

 

In addition to GR’s better-known zombie films, Creepshow was another childhood favorite, such a good one from the tween memory collection.
