Bow & Arrow Circus Collective

A psychedelic circus journey through Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”

Sept. 23rd at 8pm & 24th at 2pm.

The Redwood Playhouse presents:

Bow & Arrow Circus Theatre Collective's “Dark Side of the Circus” 

This intricately choreographed ensemble piece performed to Pink Floyd’s classic album by the best of the Bay Area’s circus talent loosely follows the narrative of the album’s classic companion piece, “The Wizard of Oz,” Dorothy is transported to a magical circus world of both playful and terrifying experiences. Developed under the auspices of the Artist Residency program at Circus Center in San Francisco.

This show took 17 years to make! At 16 years old, director Genie Cartier was already a decade into her circus training and growing up in the Haight Ashbury district, where she was inevitably immersed in Pink Floyd’s music. For many years, “Dark Side of the Circus” was a seemingly unattainable dream in the back of her mind as she continually performed in, and eventually produced, circus shows. Once Bow & Arrow was founded in 2017, the show became a major goal, leading to a year-long fundraising campaign. With a lot of hard work and support from over 100 donors, the show was two weeks away from its premiere in April 2020 when the pandemic hit and delayed the show another 2 years. Finally, in September 2022 “Dark Side of the Circus” became a reality!

This show is recommended for ages 12 and up, but nothing is unsuitable for younger children.

TICKETS: $15 - $20

Online on Eventbrite:

and $20 - $25 at the door

Bow & Arrow Circus Theatre Collective was founded in 2017 by four multidisciplinary artists. Bow & Arrow specializes in a blend of circus and theater that fully integrates circus acts as part of a well-rounded storyline. They produced and starred in the hit Pagan holiday romp, Saturnalia! A Raunchy Circus Christmas three years in a row, as well as the recent return to live performance with May Day May Pole in 2022. During the pandemic, they produced two digital variety shows, 2BTru’s Samhain Spectacular, and Green Winter: a poetry and circus mixtape. Dark Side of the Circus was made possible by a small, local fundraising campaign and backed by over 100 individual donors.

Genie Cartier (director) is a San Francisco native with a background in Chinese acrobatics and aerial rope training. She has performed a unique mix of acrobatics and hand-balancing on a folding chair all over San Francisco and Los Angeles, with companies such as Hubba Hubba Revue, Fishnet Follies, Circus Finelli, Picklewater Clown Festival, Literary Foolery, Crescent Moon Theater and Machina Candeo. She was the co-creator and star of Genie and Audrey's Dream Show!, which toured festivals in 5 different cities and won several awards, including Best of Fringe . She also notably co-created and performed Yesterday is Tomorrow, a political sketch comedy show with her sister Marie, as part of a residency at the San Francisco Mime Troupe. She is a founding member of Bow & Arrow and a board member for the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Dark Side of the Circus marks her solo directorial debut after almost 30 years as a performer.

                “And the Dance Goes On: An Autumn Variety Show”

It’s been a long couple of years for Feet First Dancers. The pandemic thwarted our love of performing, but we’ll be back giving our all to our community this fall.

“And the Dance Goes On: An Autumn Variety Show” will be held on Friday, October 21 @ 7:00, Saturday, October 22 @ 7:00, and Sunday, October 23 @ 2:00 at the Redwood Playhouse, 286 Sprowel Creek Road, Garberville.

And a great variety it is! Modern, African, Swing, Jazz, Belly Dance, Aerial – all showing the creativity and dedication of dancers – young and old – who live in our community. Adding spice to the dances will be spoken poetry and singing. Enough to feed your love of the arts.

Some of our choreographers have long experience at their craft while some young-and-upcoming dancers, like Jazminh Lambley, will show off their new skills. Christy Augustine brings folkloric belly dance, while Nya Larson was inspired by African dance.
Kristi Clark and the Swisters offer their Lindy Hop moves, and Sue Burdick conjures up a bold modern dance about the Mayan Pachicuti. We are delighted to welcome back several choreographers who began dancing as children with Feet First. There’s lots more that you won’t want to miss! There might even be a few witches and cats hanging out at the show.
Ticket price is $15-20 sliding scale, and children on laps are free. There will be refreshments with a Middle Eastern theme as well as wine and beer by donation. This show is sponsored by the McLean Foundation. Tickets are available at the Blue Moon in Garberville and at the door. Open dress rehearsal (free) is on Thursday, October 20 at 7:00 at the Playhouse. Masks are encouraged.

The creative seeds that were planted by the Feet First Dancers in 1978 are still blooming in our community. We’d love to have you join us for a return to live performance.

Sea Level Rise, a Slow Motion Flood
Sea Level Rise: A Slow Motion Flood is the topic of a free lecture by Michael Furniss, sponsored by Lost Coast Interpretive association on Sunday, December 3rd at 3 pm in association with Redwood Playhouse Presents.
Come learn about how sea level works, why it matters, what we may expect, and what you can do.  During the last 6,000 years, earth has enjoyed a geologically unusual period of stable sea level and a stable climate. This stable period is now dramatically ending due to anthropogenic climate change: we are in the midst of a "slow-motion flood." What does this mean for Humboldt County, and other coastal communities across the globe?

Michael Furniss is an engaging and entertaining speaker who has worked in 14 countries on climate change vulnerability assessment and education. He is broadly educated and worked for the US Forest Service for 33 years where he won a number of awards. He is currently the principal at M.J. Furniss and Associates.
The Redwood Playhouse is at 286 Sprowel Creek Road in Garberville.
