Back By Popular Demand! The Return of "...poems we tell ourselves..." by SATORI CIRCUS

SATORI CIRCUS is easily the Best Performance Art Group Detroit has produced. It should be seen if only to witness a New Direction in Art.” - Detroit Free Press

On Friday and Saturday, January 9th and 10th, 2015, SATORI CIRCUS will present an encore performance of his latest performance art piece titled, ..”…poems we tell ourselves…”.. in front of two audiences, in two different spaces at the Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom. After its audacious debut this past summer, the eclectic show is back by popular demand for a second run in the new year.

..”…poems we tell ourselves…”.. is a new performance piece, with all original words, music and visuals. Different from other SATORI CIRCUS’ performances, this performance delves into the dream world of a single person whose life is black and white, much like their dreams.

In our dreams we can escape; we can maneuver freely; we can become something else; we can live out our fantasies; we can become the super hero…or the anti-hero; we can defy all time and logic.

This is where up is down and down is up and that constant question lingers…”is this real or a dream?”

Satori Circus is the Theatre of the Absurd - on Mars.” – Real Detroit Weekly
New York City has the Blue Man Group, Detroit has SATORI CIRCUS.” - Chris Jaszczak

A collaboration with dear friends Brian Dambacher (Funy As Hell63mins), Tim Suliman (MOSES:39Child-Proof), Sean Redenz (63minsDAMNED), and Antonio Cosenza, has culminated into a time morphing performance, where situations occur on two separate stages. While a live performance is unfolding before one audience, the other audience is being fed a video stream of that particular piece. Then, before the other audience knows what is happening, the live performance comes to them and the previous audience witnesses the event as a video stream. This performance is continuously changing form, changing space and keeping the audience on both sides of the wall, on their toes.

January 9th and 10th at the Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom,
715 E Milwaukee St, Detroit, MI 48202 / 313.873.2955 /

Two Performances each night – In two different spaces – No two shows alike – No one audience sees the same thing.

First performance at 8P with doors at 7:30P…Second performance at 10P with doors at 9:30P

Be prepared for the unknown and come with an open heart and head to witness a hybrid of performance art rarely seen in this Detroit Metro Area. We guarantee that you have never seen anything like this and you may never again. Sometimes, journeys end where they begin and begin where they end.

A love for the absurd, SATORI CIRCUS is a singularly uncanny theatre-going experience that’s a little bit Performance Art and a little bit Rock Opera.” - Metro Times
