Antic in a Drain

About Antic in a Drain

Founded in 2014, Antic in a Drain combines circus and bouffon to develop extreme characters and tell stories from the fringes, igniting dialogue and change within communities around ignored or taboo social issues.
Antic has three works available for touring: The Greatest Monkey Show On Earth,  Bucko: Whaleman! and Tempting Fate. 

The Greatest Monkey Show On Earth is a primate circus extravaganza that takes a bite out of animal/human agency. The show toured to the Edmonton and Vancouver Fringe Festivals in Canada in 2014, receiving a four-star review from Global News and the inaugural Artistic Risk Award in Vancouver. In 2016, the show was nominated for two Theatre Bay Area Awards for Makeup and Costume Design and won for Costume Design.

Bucko: Whaleman!, a high seas whaling voyage launching a harpoon into the heart of human greed and natural resource consumption. Bucko premiered on Hyde Street Pier at San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park in 2017. 

Tempting Fate is a satirical sideshow entertainment reflecting the house of mirrors called climate change. Tempting Fate premiered at Little Boxes Theater in 2019. The show was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle by Lily Janiak.
