Mugwumpin Presents 'Future Motive Power'
Mugwumpin, San Francisco's favorite performance-ensemble dynamo, returns with the world premiere of a mind-bending performance piece inspired by the life of inventor Nikola Tesla, created for the vault level of the historic Old Mint.
From the heights of fame and wealth, he delivered electricity to the world. His genius for invention rivaled Thomas Edison, and his spectacular scientific demonstrations enraptured the likes of Mark Twain. Yet his life ended in poverty, with the pigeons outside his window as his only companions. Nikola Tesla's riveting, peculiar life provides the inspiration for Mugwumpin's newest original performance about ambition, transcendence, and the terrible price of genius.
Future Motive Power begins performances January 6 and runs through January 29 at San Francisco's historic Old Mint at the corner of 5th and Mission Streets.
Previews are Pay-What-You-Can, only available at the door.
Opening Night: Sunday, January 8th, is $30 with drinks and hors d'oeuvres included after the show.
January 13-January 22: tickets are $15 at door; $20 online
January 27-29: tickets are $20 at door; $30 online.
