Wise Fool's programs have grown so much that we are bursting out the seams of our metaphorical “BIG TOP." We are moving into a larger space where we can nurture an ever-expanding community of strong and empowered individuals who shine in life as well as on stage!  

Please go to our  Indiegogo page to donate now to build our new circus home!

Here are some additional ways to show your support:
Spread the word. Tell three people about this campaign who you think are in a position to give.
* Ask people who know and love you to match your donation. A simple “will you match me in my support for this thing I believe in” is often very fruitful!
Volunteer to build, carry, or organize. We will need all the help we can get for the big move in early September.
Donate needed items and/or your expertise throughout our move.

A Huge Thank You from all of us at Wise Fool for your support!!

Dark is the Night Circus: All the Time, Time

After the overwhelming success of last December’s Dark is the Night Circus, Wise Fool is offering its sequel: All the Time, Time. Far beyond a cabaret, this summer’s show is a full-on circus theatre installation, using the unique architecture of Skylight to create an all-encompassing performance experience. Taking it's cue from early 1900's traveling medicine shows, All the Time Time will transport audience members to a place and time where nothing is as it seems. Whether falling from the sky on corde lisse, or spinning wildly on the lyra, the show’s aerialists and jugglers will perform to the live music of Shiners’ Club Jazz Band, who “carry” the medicine show, so to speak. The band, known and loved for it’s hot jazz, swing, and ragtime stylings, will play both classics as well as original music composed especially for the show by Shiners’ Club lead man, Westin McDowell.

WHEN: Saturday August 15th, and Friday, August 21st, 2015.

Dinner service available from 6 to 8pm, show starts at 7:30pm

WHERE: Skylight Santa Fe, 139 W San Francisco St, Santa Fe, NM 87501

TICKETS: Advance tickets available at: http://darkisthenight.brownpapertickets.com.

Cost is $20 pre-sale, $25 at the door
