Spawned from the depths of San Francisco’s thriving Dance and Circus sub-cultures, the Vau de Vire Society has ravaged and titillated live entertainment, causing jaws to drop in awe and admiration around the world. This Avant-Cabaret community consists of classically-trained dancers, some of the nations most acclaimed acrobats, aerial artists, contortionists and circus side-show acts, an array of unique fire-performers, a handful of thespians and a barrage of the most enticing go-go’s.

The group has been cross-pollinating genres by collaborating with an eclectic variety of world-renowned musicians and Dj’s in creating original stage shows and festival productions spanning social barriers. Most notable recent collaborators include Cirque du Soleil, San Francisco Symphony, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, Paul Van Dyke, The Dresden Dolls, Peaches, The Alkaline Trio, Fishbone, The Madd Vibe Orchestra, Crystal Method, Tiesto…while providing live support performances for James Brown, 50 Cent, Wyclef Jean, Velvet Revolver, The Cure and many more widely respected international artists.
Transcending the wall between audience and performer…
Attending a Vau de Vire event is akin to stepping into an interactive Circus where all layers of pretension are discarded at the door. The common 2-dimensional wall between audience and performer is shattered by VdV artists emerging amongst the crowd performing thematic roaming vignettes. The audience and performer become a single force, creating an art-filled environment providing all in attendance a safe-haven to indulge fantasies of running away with the circus…if even for the night.
No matter the genre they infiltrate with their unique brand of Circus Theatrics, the Vau de Vire Society creates a live choreographed explosion of all that is beautifully talented.
