HEAVEN OR CALIFORNIA is a contemporary circus show based on the tragic true events of the Donner Party.
Seen through the eyes of newlyweds Sarah Graves and Jay Fosdick, HEAVEN OR CALIFORNIA takes you on their infamous journey, from the American Midwest, to the Great Salt Desert, to end in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
The hopes, dreams, and fears of the Donner Party are brought to life through aerial arts, acrobatics, juggling, prop manipulation, movement, and dance.
