What you'll do
Together we will channel our inner invertebrate by undulating luminous jellyfish mega-puppets as a benthic jellyfish bloom through the streets of San Francisco to the wonderment and delight of transfixed vertebrates transported to our immersive underwater world. Before and after the performance, we offer refreshments and share BJB history, jellyfish handling and channeling tips, and performance plans.

Where you'll be
Our San Francisco deployment location varies with the date and city activities. We often choose Union Square during winter holidays, Castro during Pride Week and Dolores Park during warm summer nights. From the deployment location, we follow a loop route with points of interest that provide a dramatic setting for our bloom.
