My Birthday Party

?? April 2003

Spectators arrive to the Birthday Party of a 13-year old and are surprised when a typical cake-and-presents event evolves into a magical, flighty wonderland involving acrobatics, storytelling, music, acting and clowning. The performers are former Cirque du Soleil acrobats and some of this country’s award-winning actors, performers, and musicians.
Stories are by Carl Sandburg, Viggo Mortensen, Robin Finck and Oded Gross. 

Bianca Sapetto and composer Veronika Krausas were also working on this show (Krausas is credited as the main composer). Robin read texts he had written to the audience. He also performed a song.

This event took place at the Miles Memorial Playhouse, Santa Monica, CA.

The only known picture from this event is this one and Robin is in it! It was originally hosted at robinfinck.com and thank God a fellow Finck fan saved it on their computer.
