The bus was a few minutes late - and there was no greeter or sign at the stop - so it was a little disconcerting. The 3-D programs and wallpaper were really cool. 'Hope you like incense! Being a local, I was checking this out as a potential thing to do with visitors - decided it depended greatly on the visitor! Lots of us 50+-ers sang along most of the way. Unusual, kinda fun, but not particularly enlightening? Volume of audio varied greatly - which seemed odd for Antennae... Some creeps kept lifting the curtains to peer out, which ruined the "theatre" effect for the rest of us - so don't do that!!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Magic Bus transports the audience on a magical mystery tour to a more hopeful era with a bliss-inducing soundtrack (and mind-blowing video) ..." --San Francisco Chronicle
Sausalito’s Antenna Theater, in partnership with Teacher Bus, has literally hit the streets with a traveling show aboard a renovated 20th-century bus that evokes the era and politics of the Summer of Love. The Magic Bus is a veeeery trippppppy thick, twisted multi-media mix of oral histories, rock and roll, live action, 3-D and video projections while the bus rumbles through North Beach, the Haight and Golden Gate Park.
About the Ticket Supplier: Antenna Theater
Antenna Theater of Sausalito, California is a non-profit arts organization which creates original work in many disciplines. Artistic Director Chris Hardman founded Antenna in 1980 to experiment with the essential dynamics of sound, sculpture and live performance. Since then Antenna has created over two dozen original works, has won many Bay Area Critics Circle Awards, and has toured extensively. Antenna’s work has been presented at the Smithsonian Institution, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Olympic Arts Festival, the Spoleto Festival, Tubingen University in Germany, the Cervantino Festival in Mexico, the American Cultural Center in Paris and the Roundhouse in London, among others. The Antenna experience can take the shape of a carnival, an immersive maze, a performance piece, a radio program, a guided mystery tour, a sideshow or a giant walk-through sculpture. Antenna uses them all to put the audience member, or “audient,” into the middle of the action. Organizations that have commissioned Antenna to create work for a wide range of sites and media include: the Wexner Center for the Visual Arts (Ohio), the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Mark Taper Forum (Los Angeles), Earth Drama Lab (San Francisco), Whole Earth Foundation (San Francisco), Bay Area Playwrights Festival (Marin), and KPFA Radio (Berkeley). In addition, Antenna has brought its unique combination of sound, image and movement to adventurous San Francisco Bay Area audiences in the most surprising of settings: recycling centers, high school corridors, Army barracks, the desert playa of Burning Man and the Pacific Ocean’s edge.
