BIG Production! MY FRIEND HAFIZ! 6 SHOWS! - NOT TO BE MISSED....
Its a concert. Its a Circus. Its an inspiration. Weaving the wisdom of beloved Persian poet Hafiz into their rich tapestry of unique harmonies, award-winning songwriters, The Levins, create an incredible backdrop for the breathtaking beauty of Sweet Can Circus. Wonder at the aerialists, be dazzled by acrobats and laugh with the clowns. First performed by Sweet Can Productions and the Levins in San Francisco in 2014, this production is a revival of that popular show - being brought back by audience request.
This cutting edge performance combines music, circus, dance, and projection in a beautiful tale of overcoming shame and anger and finding forgiveness and community. Dance Mission's intimate theater allows the audience to become steeped in the experience, creating what we like to call in the biz, "theater magic"!
