Interview – Sara Moore

Today’s guest is Sara Moore

Sara Moore is an award-winning American clown. Also known as Toby, they bring over three decades of experience as a performer, writer, educator, author, and filmmaker. Their substantial body of creative work covers the full spectrum of clowning and spans multiple media, from the big top to film and stage, including Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, The Krofft Puppets, New Pickle Circus, Make*A*Circus, Circus Bella, Cruise Lines, Off-Broadway, Regional Theatre, and as the comic foil in huge shows for entertainment tycoon Merv Griffin who dubbed Toby “The New Fanny Brice.” Moore is also the proud writer-director of the cult indie film Homo Heights. Hailed by critics as everything from a “21st century Pagliacci” to “a comedic powerhouse” Moore’s trademark Human Cartoon productions include Show Ho as well as Wunderworld, The Supers, The Secret Life of Custodians, Cyclones (in process) and the forthcoming Atomic Clown, based on Moore’s book of the same name. ClownCon is Toby’s true home as there’s no greater bliss than the sharing of poetic idiocy in a forum of Fools!

San Francisco Mime Troupe

Recently I spoke with Ellen Callas and Daniel Savio of the Tony Award winning SAN FRANCISCO MIME TROUPE.

The company opened a new musical today entitled “Treasure Island”. 

“Treasure Island” – is it the mythical isle where untold wealth awaits marauding pirates, or the freezing cold, artificial island in the middle of San Francisco Bay awaiting cut-throat developers? Or is it both? That’s the question for Jill Hawkins when an old sea-dog of a developer drops anchor in her office at City Hall, and drops a mystery in her lap. “Developers…they scour the map looking for cities with fat purses, ready to be plundered, damn the regulations!” But if Treasure Island is such a wonderful opportunity why has no one developed it yet…? What about the people who live there now? And who is the one-legged developer Hawkins was warned about?


About the Mime Troupe

The San Francisco Mime Troupe creates and produces socially relevant theater of the highest professional quality and performs it before the broadest possible audience.

They do plays that make sense out of the headlines by identifying the forces that shape our lives and dramatizing the operation of these giant forces in small, close-up stories that make our audiences feel the impact of political events on personal life.

To make this work accessible the Mime Troupe performs its shows in local parks at a price everyone can afford: FREE.

The San Francisco Mime Troupe does not do silent pantomime. We mean ‘mime’ in the ancient sense: to mimic. We talk, we sing, we make a lot of noise. We are satirists, seeking to make you laugh at the absurdities of contemporary life and at the same time, see their causes. We’ve done shows about most of the burning issues of our time, generally shows that debunked the official story. We perform everywhere from public parks to palaces of culture, aiming to reach the broadest possible audience.
