Someone once said that you don’t just listen to Pink Floyd’s classic album The Dark Side of the Moon, you experience it. And if you haven’t experienced it yet, or it’s been a while, or you have yet to experience a psychedelic circus show intricately choreographed to it, then you’re in for a treat this weekend in SoHum. Bow & Arrow Circus from San Francisco performs its show Dark Side of the Circus at Redwood Playhouse on Saturday, Sept. 23, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 24, at 2 p.m. ($15-$20). Director Genie Cartier says the performance loosely follows the narrative of the album’s classic companion piece, The Wizard of Oz. In it, Dorothy is transported to a magical circus world of both playful and terrifying experiences. While the show is recommended for ages 12 and up, Cartier says there’s nothing unsuitable for younger children. Tickets are first come, first served at the door, or available in advance online at Eventbrite.
