ClownSnotBombs is a non-profit community circus troupe that believes joy
and laughter are a fundamental human right. Our mission is to provide quality affordable entertainment and learning opportunities for everyone. We are a company of six multi-talented physical theater artists, circus performers, and musicians, who are dedicated to creating new theater and bringing joy to Bay Area audiences young and old. Founded in 2006 in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, ClownSnotBombs began as a collaboration between circus artists and musicians, touring and performing across the country in a vegetable oil-powered bus. In 2012 we were awarded a CA$H grant administered by Theater Bay Area to create a new work called “A Spaghetti Western,” a contemporary ensemble-based show directed by Faeble Kievman. We also teach youth programs in the East Bay and host a weekly and free circus skill-share. ClownSnotBombs is a fiscally sponsored project of Living Dream Arts, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
We are proud to announce that we made our goal in IndieGoGo in the final minutes of our campaign. Thank you to all of our contributors, volunteers, fans, family and friends for helping us get to where we are. We couldn’t do it without you! We are excited to go on tour to perform and hold workshops in Benbow, Arcata, Portland, Ashland, Willits, Caspar and Philo. Visit our calendar for the full details of our tour.
