Born of a love of street theater and vaudeville, Dark Follies began bringing its special brand of variety show to life in the dark hours of Portland's summer First Friday Art Walk nights in the Autumn of 2008. It has since evolved into 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 (not just) Rhythm Orchestra, dancing, juggling, storytelling, side show acts, flow artists, fire performers and more. Whether performing in the town square, on the theater stage or your corner coffee house, each Dark Follies show is a unique blend of performance arts.
In 2011 and 2012, Dark Follies won the Portland Phoenix Best of Portland Award for best street/ performance artist. Now entering its fifth year, Dark Follies will continue to surprise, entertain and delight audiences in the street and on the stage.
