Without a doubt, a truly authentic first-person account of the Performing Life! With cameo appearances by Ken Kesey, Michael Franti, and Speed Levitch, director Flecher Fleurdujon (in person) manages to capture thee genuine San Fran spirit in his rag-tag troupe’s audacious risk-taking, insane ingenuity, and joyous community. This home-grown feature details how a gang of poets and musicians turned a pile of puppets into an international touring New Vaudeville sensation, the YARD DOGS! Flecher, Zebu Recchia, and Miguel Strong gathered up a freaky tribe of musicians, jugglers, and ‘nu-burlesk’ dancers who embodied the Wild West underground tradition, who barely survived 2 tech crunches, and who then summoned up the guts to take their Dionysian carnival on the road in a big magic bus! Season-opener is set up with a sampling of vintage circus shorts, Incredibly Strange Music (live and on 16mm), and a free-champagne reception for “OtherZine#31”.
