Circus Amok and Barbara Ann Michaels (circus and clown)
…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. https://www.circusamok.org
"Stranger in A Normal Land:" Are we all really friends who haven't met yet? How do we bridge the perceived distances between us? "Stranger in a Normal Land" is a clown theater exploration of what it means to be a stranger and a friend. Whether traveling the world or the block, how do we often interact with each other? And how else could we? How often do you feel like a stranger or a friend to your own self? Enjoy this audience-interactive playful and serious take on connection.
