SF Mime Troupe play "WALLS" nominated for Outstanding World Premiere Musical!

Dear Friends,

We know we are living in bizarre times when the President of the United States seems to be in a personal war with: North Korea, healthcare, Freedom of the Press, NATO, Iran, Women, Black People, the Democrats, the Republicans, California, Puerto Rico, the Secretary of State, Democracy, and the National Football League. And this in addition to his life-long struggle against justice, ethics, the truth, and not being a double-dealing plutocratic gangster.

He must be exhausted.

Lies? Greed? Ineptitude? While the President celebrates these qualities the Mime Troupe will continue to disrespectfully disagree, and in these insane times continue to use our stage to inform, activate, entertain, comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable, and speak Truth to Power. And while Donald Trump will spend this Halloween dressing up as the world's premiere Egomaniacal Twitteriffic Demagogue (you know, his regular clothes) we at the Troupe will be readying our costumes for our next takedown of everything he represents!


In Solidarity,
The San Francisco Mime Troupe

Come stand up for immigrants, refugees, and marginalized folks ensnared by the criminal injustice system who are inside the Bay Area's regional ICE detention center at Contra Costa's county jail. Show your support for the families visiting loved ones inside. Now is the time to fight the right wing's racist, xenophobic, anti- Muslim, ableist, transphobic, homophobic, misogynist ramp up of authoritarian policing, detention, and deportation practices-if not now, when?

Let Our People Go is a youth-and-elder-friendly action that opposes the immoral detentions, deportations, and mass incarceration in our Bay Area communities with a one-hour program integrating activist updates, music, art, poetry, storytelling, and representation from different faith communities (including faithful and faithless humanists). Accessible site, easy parking, bathrooms available in the visitors waiting room.

Please join them at upcoming Sunday protests: November 12th and December 10th. Bring your voices, stories, percussion, signs,
songs, art, kids, and friends! We are always seeking performers and speakers. Contact organizers.

The Mime Troupe needs YOU to bring our community together!

We were on the barricades in the 1960s, part of a coalition of regular folks who came together to oppose racism, sexism, war, and corporate greed. Today we are witnessing the erosion of many of the victories won by that movement but the never-silent San Francisco Mime Troupe has always believed in the power of the people united. As we enter a critical election year, we must do our part to foster a movement of working people of all genders, races, incomes, and sexual orientations. And so we are opening our doors and inviting our community in to help us best utilize art's power to envision and demand a better future.

We'll need some help to accomplish this goal and so we are looking to create a long term relationship with someone who has experience in community organizing and who would like to help us create opportunities for more community dialogue.

This would be a volunteer position and our ideal candidate is someone who is familiar with the Mime Troupe and who is connected to the local activist community. A self-starter with great people skills who can help us with:
  • programming events at the Troupe and off-site
  • networking with other organizations
  • inter-community dialogue
  • attending story meetings to develop our summer show
  • generating discussion topics for community events
  • researching our summer show topics and connecting us to community experts on the issues
We are looking for someone who can start this fall and assist us through next summer. If interested please send an email to engage@sfmt.org. We look forward to connecting with you.
