Coney '07 Events: 1st Annual Congress Of Curious Peoples: CICUS AMOK

Circus Amok is scheduled to perform at Coney as part of the 1st Annual Congress of Curious Peoples and will feature new work for the gender bending circus under the direction of Jennifer Miller.

From the Circus Amok website:
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 sing 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.
