Vau de Vire Society and Tourettes Without Regrets are among the confirmed performance artists at this year's Symbiosis Gathering at Woodward Reservoir Regional Park near Oakdale.

Symbiosis Gathering Announces Performance Series Lineup for ‘Family Tree’ Event (Sept. 22-25)

Symbiosis Gathering 2016: Performers LineupSymbiosis Gathering, a large multi-day arts, music and spiritual gathering, returns to California after a four-year absence to host four days and nights of deep relaxation as well as fun and excitement at Woodward Reservoir Regional Park near Oakdale on September 22-25, 2016.

While music is one of the gathering’s biggest themes, performance art also takes center stage during the event. SG recently announced its performer lineup, which includes many of the country’s top circus and dance troops (such as Vau de Vire Society, Wanderlust Circus, and Flynn Creek Circus) and performance artists (Pyronauts and Rose-City Acro Devils) to shock and awe attendees as it aims to entertain and inspire.

The assortment will more than likely please your palate even if you have a fairly particular one. If you’re looking for some all-in-one variety action, try Tourettes Without Regrets with its combination of circus, comedy slam, and dance. If you want stage performances full of costume and theater, try Bad Unkl Sista. If you have dreamed of seeing “junkyard beatnik” as part of a live audience, try Shovelman who bounces between blues and psychedelic rock with his one-man-band act.

  • Vau de Vire Society
  • Tourettes Without Regrets
  • Zoe Jakes: House of Tarot

  • Wanderlust Circus w/ Band

SG also features numerous art installations and art boats (a first for me), environmental spaces, speakers and talks, workshops, world-renown yoga instructors, and lots of food to help the thousands of expected attendees reach their zen.

Additional details will be announced gradually as the festival approaches.
