OmniCircus Theatre was founded in 1988 by artist Frank Garvey. OmniCircus was a gallery and performance art space located since 1992 at 550 Natoma St. in San Francisco and home to Garvey’s performance ensemble, (also called OmniCircus), as well an installation of his films, paintings, sculptures, music, photos, and robots. The OmniCircus shows integrated live acting, music, and dance with sophisticated mechanical actors and midi-controlled, computer animated (VIRpt) performers. OmniCircus was forced to leave the space in San Francisco in early 2015 (after 23 years in that location) and is currently searching for a new home.
