In conjunction with the exhibition Attention Line, the radical New York City circus and theater troupe Circus Amok makes its triumphant return with its first new show since 2018 at Artists Space in Cortlandt Alley on Saturday, August 13th at 2pm. The show is free and open to the public.
Witness as a beleaguered band of circus performers flee fire and flood, transphobia, misogyny and more, seeking refuge in the arms of New York City. But…will they find it?? Find out for yourself when you attend Circus Amok's back-alley political queer extravaganza!
Expect stunning stilters, jaunty jugglers, astounding acrobats, drag queens, nerd bots and more...danger, glamour, glitter, beware!! The show's star-studded cast includes Becca Blackwell, Jules Skloot, Claire Dolan, Stephanie Woods, Pher Gleason, Lex Alston, Kym Bernazky, David Guzman, Zo Williams, and Kali Therrien, with the infamous Circus Amok band directed by Jenny Romaine and featuring Ben Meyers, Jessica Lurie, Mary Feaster, and Lee Free, and a set designed by Scotty Heron.
