Welcome to Circus Amok!

JUNE 13!
Circus Amok BENEFIT SPECTACULAR at LAVA STUDIO!

Circus Amok is thriving in its eighth year of reinventing the circus form, borrowing drag fabulousness from Charles Ludlam’s Theater of the Ridiculous, large scale transformation using whole-body masks from Bread and Puppet Theater, and the outdoor bally and verbal rhythm and repertoire from the sideshow, as well as movement vocabulary from post-modern dance. The troupe balances danger with laughter, slipping its critique between the pies in the face and the surreal, scary, and sometimes gender-bent characters of the charivari.  –Mark Sussman, in Disturbing the Peace: 20th Century Radical Street Performance, 2001
