The worst storm in the history of Detroit comes through whisking two young boys, Donny and Tommy, off to the magical land of Odd. Where everyone becomes who they truly are. Donny transforms into a young woman Dorothy Gale and Tommy transforms in his best friend, Toto the dog. Dorothy’s apartment lands on the Wicked Witch of the East. She becomes the hero of the people of Munchkin land and is sent on a journey to meet the Wizard of Odd, to find her way home.

“The Odditorium “ was once a magical freak show that traveled across the land with a circus run by a mysterious wizard that no one ever met but everyone loved and respected for taking care of the freaks.

The Wizards show consisted of three stars, the Tin Man, the Scare Crow, and the Lion. There were also lesser paid, filler members of the show referred to as “munchkins.”

At the height of the show’s popularity the Wizards older twin sisters, The Wicked Witches, joined the show and took their brothers profits. Casting a spell upon the Odditorium. Ticket sales plummeted and the sisters abused the members of the freak show and manipulating their younger brother out of his job.

The gang breaks up and the wizard abandons the show, going home to his younger sister, Glinda. The wicked sisters are happy and start their own show, using the name of their brothers successful show replacing all the performers with their flying monkeys.

Glinda knows the truth about her evil older sisters putting a spell on the Odditorium. She takes in the munchkins and vows to help spread the truth about her sisters to clear her brother’s reputation.

Dorothy and Toto go off to see the wizard and meet new friends The scare crow, the tin man and the lion. Their bond of friendship defeats the evil Wicked Witch of the West and her army of Flying Monkeys. Through this journey they find out who they truly are and bring peace to the Land Of Odd.

SATORI CIRCUS PRESENTS…’Funy As Hell: a baptism under fire’

“New York City has the Blue Man Group, Detroit has SATORI CIRCUS.” – Chris Jaszczak

On June 24th and June 25th, 2016, SATORI CIRCUS, Dave and Brian Dambacher will be presenting their collaborative award winning performance art piece, titled, ‘FUNY AS HELL: a baptism under fire!’ at Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom. This time SATORI CIRCUS and the Dambacher Brothers, have yet, another opportunity of reinterpreting their own creation, ‘Funy As Hell’ from its first presentations at Meadow Brook Theatre and Yale University – this time with a LIVE BAND featuring Dave Dambacher, Sadaat Hossain, Nathan Dauphinais, J. Pauly Zimmer esq., Robby Schwei and Ryan McInnis with Special guest performers Barbara Jean and Scott Dambacher.
(By the way, ‘Funy’ is actually pronounced, Funny.)

“The Bottom Line: Performance Art is not for everyone; for the rest of us there is SATORI CIRCUS!” – Between The Lines

Using Dante’s The Divine Comedy as the framework you are guided through a labyrinth of questions, of spirit, of destiny, of hope, of despair, and pure naughtiness: all the same musings. You witness the travels of a man who is lost in a dream between the here and there of Purgatory, Hell and Paradise: the same premise. Combining music, song, costumes, sound & lights, movement, film, cabaret and enlightenment your perception is obscured as to what performance art is, or what it could be…and yes, these are all the same contraptions used to embellish a story.
Blurring what is typically thought of as theatre, SATORI CIRCUS and the Dambachers will bring the audience through the subterranean worlds of Purgatory, Hell and Paradise to witness, participate in and analyze the situations that our protagonist, our hero (or anti-hero), manages to become involved with…deliberately or accidentally.

“SATORI CIRCUS is easily the Best Performance Art Group Detroit has produced. It should be seen if only to witness a New Direction in Art.” – Detroit Free Press

Be prepared for the unknown and come with an open heart and head to witness a performance art hybrid rarely seen. We guarantee that you have never seen anything like this. You may never again. And you’ll leave humming and wondering if hell could really be this entertaining. As Dante said at the gates of hell, “Abandon every hope, all ye who enter here.”

June 24th (Fri.) & June 25th (Sat.)…
Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom
715 E. Milwaukee St., Detroit, MI 48202 – 313.873.2955
…doors at 8:30P w/performances at 9P and Midnight
$15 at the door

“A love for the absurd, SATORI CIRCUS is a singularly uncanny theatre-going experience that’s a little bit Performance Art and a little bit Rock Opera.” – Metro Times
