The TeleCircus is the old art-transformation performance reinvented for the pre-millenial shakedown. Inside of the "Big Show" context, we will attempt to build a choice selection of some of the more interesting eruptions taking place inside the artso-digital world of San Francisco. Here you will find a community adept at making it up as they go along. Some work digitally, some do not. Such distinctions have no place in the world of the circus, in the world of "real-imagination". Change sweeps us along. Here on the Web, we find a way to look forward and take in a 360 degree view at the same time. The view is inspiring, the performers daring, the excitement building.
