Symbiosis Gathering, a multifaceted lakeside arts, music, and community gathering, today announced the complete performance programming for the 2016 event ‘Family Tree’.

Performance has become a pillar of the  Symbiosis experience, offering attendees glimpses into distant realities created by the theatrics and on-stage environments crafted by these artists. Some of the nation’s most acclaimed circus troops, pyro-artists, and installation ensembles come together throughout the immaculate lakeside grounds to further captivate fans and bewitch passerbyers. The curation of these immense talents provides an essential platform for this growing contingent of outlier performers in the community- a totally unique take on awe-striking, thought provoking entertainment.

Symbiosis attendees may wander upon top Circus and Dance troupes like Vau de Vire Society, Zoe Jakes’ House of Tarot, Flynn Creek Circus, Wanderlust Circus or Mystic Circus Sideshow before being entranced by the fire ritual performance of Vatra Amidzich’s Pyronauts or Blaze. One may be treated to a lakeside beatboxing session with the Fungineers, only to find the high-flying Rose-City Acro Devils building a human skyscraper behind them. An evening spent exploring the grounds may lead to a comedic journey through poetry slams, rap battles, open mics, and circus crafted by the infamous Tourettes Without Regrets. It is such spontaneity that makes these performances an essential part of the Symbiosis experience, creating the container for laughter, awe, and inspiration.

The Symbiosis experience, defined by cutting edge musical and art programming, will include countless art installations and multiple collectives of live painters, forward thinking musical acts spread across distinctly varied stages, plus a first of its kind art boat program. Symbiosis Gathering: Family Tree will not only be a time for celebrating the reunion of families and memories from past years, but will serve as a precursor for what may be the burgeoning brand’s most important event to date: Symbiosis Gathering Oregon Eclipse 2017.
