carnival of chaos: (kā-ŏs) noun & adj. the only thing predictable is unpredictability

"...equivalent of scratching an itch I couldn't reach."
--SF Bay Guardian

“…they’re funny, go see them!”
–sfgate

The Carnival of Chaos, performs as a duo as well as a larger ensemble, and creates wild, unpredictable and magical shows of farce and lunacy. Original music, audience participation and improvisational humor make each show an adventure unto itself.

The Carnival of Chaos does it all!! Stage shows and roving entertainment; custom tailored for special events, festivals and theater venues. Unstoppable, they go everywhere; travel the world causing beautiful, calculated and always unforgettable...CHAOS!!.

Larger ensemble shows range from full cabaret shows to circus ambience, to tailored individual acts depending on the event. From dancing unicyclists, to singing acrobats to stiltwalking musicians, this zany troupe brings chaos, mystery and magic.

We are named Carnival of Chaos because chaotic temperament dominates the routines. Each show really feels as if it is ‘out of control,’ unscripted and unpredictable. This atmosphere lends itself to creating tension and comic relief.

Theatre shows allow us a certain creative latitude for writing of fresh material whether it’s story, routines or character. When we are able to delve into the integrity of material, not sacrificing fresh creative ideas; it enables us to push the artistic envelope and often discover a buried treasure or two. Each show allows both ourselves and our audience an adventure!

"...sexy and hilarious."
--SF Bay Guardian
