Dark Follies

I manage and perform with a troupe called Dark Follies. We are a six member band with a variety of performers and acts that create spectacle set to music.

Dark Follies is an award winning vaudeville style variety show based in Portland, Maine. Family friendly while still keeping an edge, Dark Follies features the live music of the Dark Follies Rhythm Orchestra, dancing, juggling, side show acts, fire performers and more.

Born of a love of street theater, vaudeville and a desire to create a space to showcase the performance talent present in Portland’s goth community, Dark Follies began bringing its special brand of street Vaudeville to life in the dark hours of Portland’s summer First Friday Art Walk nights in the Autumn of 2008.

2011, 2012 and 2014 Dark Follies has won the Portland Phoenix Best of Portland Award for best street/ performance artist. Now entering it’s fifth year, Dark Follies will continue to surprise, entertain and delight audiences in the street and on the stage in 2012 and beyond. [+]
