City Circus is HERE!!!

Just a few more days till we open Echo's Reach at Brava Theater.

(edited to add awesome review from our opening night. tons of photos, technically no rhinestones since we added them all in later)

I am super excited about this show. It is a full blown circus featuring youth and adult performers that have amazing skills. check out this video from last year

and then know that you have to see this circus yourself. It's got amazing skills, a compelling story, and the most fabulous costumes you have ever. seen. in your. entire. life. Why do I know this? Because Medium Reality did them, natch.

april events update

The weather is blowing back and forth like crazy in San Francisco! Our trusty bike couriers have kept up with a smile, trekking Medium Reality garments back and forth across town and up crazy hills to all of our stores and theaters. (and bringing us snacks.... thanks TCB!) We have been churning the clothes out as fast as we can but it is an uphill battle to keep up with demand. Keep asking, though, we love you too and are growing our production capacity this spring. Keep the curveballs coming!

[1.] Sense & Sustainability - April 9
This amazing opportunity in downtown New York fell into our laps super last minute but Medium Reality is always ready to rock it when needed. This sustainable runway show is being produced as a fundraiser to help finish a documentary about India. There are tons of amazing people involved and I have been hearing the buzz all the way from here! If you will be in New York, check it out!
On Friday April 9th, Joya Dass (former business anchor with ABC and CNN) and Aiden Murtagh of Eyes Wide Open Productions is hosting a "green" fashion show at the Aicon Gallery, 35 Great Jones St, between Lafayette and Bowery.
Their event is called “Sense and Sustainability” and features four designers with a focus on furthering the sustainable fashion movement: Swati Argade, Helen Asir, Rachel Lyra Hospodar (Medium Reality) and Marcus Hicks (Sarah Dixons Nova). is the project sponsor. The event runs from 6-9 pm with the runway show beginning promptly at 8 pm! All proceeds from this event will go towards the post-production of her first documentary, called First Sight, investigating the world of curable blindness in India. To buy your tickets go to:
Come by for a hot night of fashion, open bar, a silent auction offering you a chance to win a trip to a sustainable resort in Baja California!

We're travelling down to NASA on thursday to hang up some paintings, how often does one get to do that? Looking forward to an amazing science-oriented party at Moffett Field!

[6.] Alchemy May 1
Mark your calendars now for this amazing interactive art party. Last year was an amazing packed experience of high- and low-tech fun. This year promises even more of both, with lots of in between too. Liquid nitrogen and finger puppets. And electronics. What could go wrong?
