Cirkus Pandemonium "Big Top" Memorial Oak Grove
Berkeley, CA December 2, 2007
Today marked the first anniversary of Berkeley's urban tree-sit resistance. The day's events were punctuated by press conferences, music and many speeches. A highlight, for most who had come to pay homage to the free speech action, came at dusk when Cirkus Pandemonium came alive. Operating under the extremely bright security lights (and diesel generators) of the fenced oak grove, the troupe of clowns and performers entertained the spectators with their circus antics, skits and juggling.
Pandemonium's performance finale, an "aerial silk" dance, was performed by Odyssey suspended high above in the oak grove canopy. Her spins and rolls captivated the audience below that included the university campus police. This seemed to be a most fitting and perfect conclusion to what was a beautiful day of celebration. Happy birthday Memorial Oak Grove!
