Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences around the world for nearly 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. He is a favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has enjoyed eleven years of sell-out success.
Louis explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, tornados and trampolines to people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages.

“This show will rearrange your molecular structure” (SE Examiner, Portland OR)
“The range and beauty of the effects really has to be seen to be believed and anyone who doubts that bubbles can fill an hour of stage time will be very pleasantly surprised.” (Fest Magazine, Edinburgh)
“The thought….that I almost stayed home tonight instead of coming here….is dreadful” (Audience Member, Portland OR)
Church of Film presents Russian Fairy Tale Animation
A collection of wondrous short fairy tale films from the Soviet Union’s best animation studio, Soyuzmultfilm! Given free reign stylistically, and with no profit motive, Soviet animators created one of the most productive and groundbreaking animation studios in the world to rival Walt Disney! While many of the fairy tales echo Disney’s choice of material, Russian animators employed a broader technical diversity and approaches, and often more abstract, beautiful, and phantasmagoric representations.
Included will be Ivan Aksenchuk’s breathtaking THE LITTLE MERMAID (1968) and CINDERELLA (1979), work by the great Olga Khodataeva, Vladimir Pekar’s exquisitely designed VASSILISSA THE BEAUTIFUL (1977), and much more!
