The Adventures of Heartman - Fern Street Circus
UCSD, Galbraith Lawn West
- The Adventures of Heartman explores myths, inspirations and aspirations around superheroes and superheroines, starting with a seven-year-old child’s imaginary superhero and broadly using a circus sensibility of playfulness and levity. This interactive show features a core troupe of San Diego’s finest circus and variety arts professionals, a bi-lingual ringmaster, After-School Circus Program students from City Heights, and a 5-piece band – all in a newly created Fern Street set. Prior to each performance, visual artists will conduct pre-show workshops to help audience members create their own superheroes for the show’s opening parade.
