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