San Francisco Mime Troupe was on the barricades in the 1960s, part of a coalition of regular citizens 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. 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.
