Fremont, CA—Join us at the Big Top as the Smith Center presents San Francisco's own internationally renowned circus troupe. Sweet Can performs an amazing array of traditional circus feats and aerials with unexpected and exciting new twists that will thrill audiences of all ages.

Formed in August of 2006 by Beth Clarke, Kerri Kresinski, and Daniela Steiner, Sweet Can Productions is a collection of eight local circus artists and four musicians who create artistically innovative theatrical circus. Through technical virtuosity, developed character, and layered narrative they seek to create an experience that is both intimate and inspiring.

Called "simply beautiful to behold" by the SF Weekly, Sweet Can's "Habitat" is a multi-disciplinary show which integrates circus, live music, dance, and theater to amaze, delight and inspire. In an intimate setting, the characters use trapeze, aerial silks, slack rope, juggling and acrobatics to reveal themselves and their relationships with raw honesty and humor. A must-see, unforgettable show for all ages.
