Our Directors Polly Whittaker and Barron Scott Levkoff have been producing events, cultivating creative community, and socially innovating as a team since 2000. Polly’s work in Fashion Design and Scott’s work as a professional entertainer and director originally brought them together to create fabulous fashion shows, but their decade of collaboration has birthed many projects, including a event space in San Francisco, an innovative perspective on Social Design, an infamous, award winning costumed, cabaret event which has spread across the world, and more than a few rounds of minigolf. If you are interested in learning more, you can read their complete resumes.
Over the last decade we have produced events every weekend at our event space in San Francisco. As well as our regular events, we also produce large scale productions outside the space. Read on for some of our favorites…
The Exotic Erotic Ball VIP Lounge
2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010
For the last 6 years we have produced this annual party within a party, growing it from a small corner of the event with 150 attendees, to an enormous spectacle in 16,000 square feet, with 1500 attendees, and 5 stages of ongoing performance, transforming a cavernous venue into a 360° immersive spectacle. We have been responsible for every aspect of the production including sound, lighting, staging, décor and performance.
Lagunitas Beer Circus
2009, 2010, 2011
We just love the Beer Circus. For the last 2 years (and already booked for next year) we have provided entertainment and décor for this promotional event for Lagunitas Brewery, filling their stages with Burlesque Troupes, Sideshow Acts and Music, sending our walkaround performers into the crowd, and brightening up the big top with our colorful circus banners.
Ua Noa Festival
We worked with producers from Japan to create this interactive, immersive arts festival on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Creating an event based on what the guests had to offer, it was scripted on the fly, with spontaneous performances and workshops erupting from the crowd.
For Valentines Day in 2005 we produced this Candyland themed party at San Francisco’s notorious ‘Porn Palace’. With top name DJs, outrageous décor, costumed revellers, high flying circus acts, and a sold out house of over 600 guests, it’s one that sticks in our memories.
Voodoo Fetish Ball
Working with producers in New Orleans we created a themed stage show for a nightclub opening in the French Quarter during the week of Mardi Gras. We flew in 20 performers from the Bay Area to create the show.
