Celebrating its sixth year in San Francisco, The Flow Show SF is an innovative showcase of object manipulation that will change your idea of movement. Sometimes known as “spinning”, this group of movement disciplines all share one common trait: the manipulation of a “prop” or object.  This year’s cast includes flow artists exploring artistic themes with poi, hoop, staff, buugeng, ball, and other props, all in the intimacy of a dance theater setting.  Combining elements of dance, circus, and theater, with mind-blowing dexterity, timing, and expression, this groundbreaking show will take you on a creative journey through flow.

History of the Flow Show

The Flow Show started as a lark for founder Khan Wong. He had witnessed too many performances where the spinner or juggler’s act was background dressing or a side-act to a “main” event. These performances included fire shows where even though the performer was front and center, it was moreso the fire that the audience saw. He wondered what a stage show would be like, where the focus was on the spinner, their skill, their choreography, their expression, and where the performances were presented as a form of dance-theater.

Thus a call was put out “Hey everybody let’s put on a show…”  Many in the San Francisco spinning community stepped up to participate. That first year, the show happened to fall the weekend before Firedrums, when a lot of the brightest lights in the international spinning world were already arriving in town for the annual camp-out/firejam/marathon geek out session. It was a rare alignment, and a crowd estimated to be three times the legal capacity of the venue showed up and most were turned away. The response by those who made it into the show was rapturous, and it was clear at the end of that first night that something bigger than a one-off show was born.

The Flow Show has now been presented five times in San Francisco, with the second New York City production coming in December 2013 and the first Chicago and sixth San Francisco shows in 2014.
