Incorporating circus, comedy, theatre and film, Bowart’s LaLaLuna is a surreal tale about the night the light went out in the moon. LaLaLuna made its UK premiere at the Royal Festival Hall as part of 2007’s London International Mime Festival (see review ). Also in 2007, Bowart undertook a 40-performance national tour of Australia, and presented LaLaLuna at the Volos International Festival in Greece.
In 2006, Bowart performed LaLaLuna at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre during the production’s first Australian tour. Critic Fergus Shiel of The Age proclaimed the show “luminously inventive and magically silly” and Ari Sharp of The Program wrote “Bowart is the ultimate physical performer. He has a breathtaking awareness of his own body, and glides effortlessly across the stage with balletic skill. His sleight-of-hand is magnificent and fits in so neatly that you sometimes barely notice that it’s there, which allows the audience to be swept away in the dreamy mystique that Bowart seeks to create.”
As artistic director and co-creator of The Shneedles, Bowart together with fellow clown Bill Robison have performed in Japan, Singapore, Australia (see review), Germany, Austria, Spain, Iceland and the U.S. In 2007, The Shneedles completed a 6-month season in Germany for GOP-Varieté Theaters.
As a performer/playwright, Wolfe Bowart’s previous work has been produced for the theatre throughout the U.S. In 1994, the Mark Taper Forum's youth theater, Performing for Los Angeles Youth, presented the premiere of Harold's Big Feat. The play was written and performed by Bowart and directed by Peter Brosius. In 1997, Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis produced Table Settings. In 1998, the California Youth Theatre commissioned Seven Baskets for Khalid, and in 2004, Maine’s Arts Centre at Kingdom Falls commissioned and produced Bowart and performer Beverly Mann in The Daft and the Daring. Bowart’s play Lemmings and Pallbearers won the Best of the Festival at the New City Theatre Festival in Seattle. Also in Seattle, Bowart co-write and performed Through the Sipapu with Bill Robison and Steve White (Blue Man Group).
Bowart has co-written several motion picture and television screenplays on assignment, including “eye-see-you.com,” the season finale episode of the television series The Net for the USA Network, which aired in March 1999.
As an actor in the U.S., Bowart has guest-starred on TV programs on ABC, CNBC, the Disney Channel and PBS. On the stage, he has performed in such productions as Moon Over Madness at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood, and in The Joy of Going Somewhere Definite at the Mark Taper Forum.
As a director and artist-in-residence, Bowart has brought physical theatre to people of all ages in conjunction with the Los Angeles Music Center, Wolf Trap, the Ahmanson Theatre, the Playwrights Project, California Youth Theatre, the Virginia Avenue Project, the Mark Taper Forum and Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts.
