OmniCircus is a surreal cabaret troupe featuring musicians, actors, robots and digital artists that has been a part of the San Franciso arts community for over 25 years. It's director, composer, filmmaker and roboticist Frank Garvey, got throat cancer in 2011 and the disruption caused by his chemo and debilitating radiation therapy caused him to eventually lose his space.
He is now homeless and living in his mini-van, and his art and music production (and his so-called "romantic life") is completely stymied. Help us raise $14,000 so Frank can get an RV where he can not only live but also make music and edit his surrealist videos.

Frank Garvey has battled throat cancer for the past several years but recently received an all clear from his doctors. However, he is still old, ugly and slightly smelly, and he needs to be able to make music and videos to distract himself from his overwhelmingly old ugly and slightly smelly loneliness.
If you help him get an RV he will be able to attract a beautiful and kind companion, probably a rescue doggy, who will be happy to share his nomadic life as he tours with his music and writes the greatest novel since Moby Dick. Thanks!
