Since the beginning of time, the queer, the abnormal and the strange experienced a grim fate of either being burned at the stake, deemed untouchable or in the best case scenario joining a traveling medicine show to be gawked at by strangers. Today, in 2013, in the best city in the world, the circus freaks skip the line and sneak past the velvet ropes, sip free champagne, and rub shoulders with the rich and the famous. It might have taken 10,000+ years, but Bizarre has finally grown from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan!
Thursday, April 25th!
Bizarre Aerial and Variety Show!
New York City is the capital of Bizarro World if there ever was one. This is a city where with enough dedication one can be a professional mermaid/unicorn! Or a corporate sword swallower! Or an insured and death-defying aerialist! A FDNY approved pyromaniac! This month we explore what it means to have a career as a high-end circus freak. We’ve reached a point of no return, our dreams have permanently become our realities. We’ve come to terms with bizarre being the new normal and we invite you to come and enjoy the magic and the chaos that comes with that.
MC’d by the most eccentric Kae Burke.
Starring:Kenneth Stephen Neil, Poetry N Motion, Jelly Boy the Clown, Anya Sapozhnikova, Lisa Natoli
Seanna Sharp and her snake Arishka! Dana Abrassart, Maryam Washington, Scott Combs, Modern Gypsies! and probably Spazz Hands!!
All proceeds from the show go directly into funding the aerial acrobatic programing at the Sky Box at House of Yes- your friendly neighborhood NeverLand.
