ABOUT CIRCUS AMOK
Circus Amok is a New York City based circus-theater company whose mission is to provide free public art addressing contemporary issues of social justice to the people of New York City.
Directed and founded by Jennifer Miller, the group has been together since 1989, bringing its funny, queer, caustic and sexy, political, one-ring spectacles to diverse neighborhoods throughout the city. Traditional circus skills — tight rope walking, juggling, acrobatics, stilt walking, clowning — are combined with experimental dance, life-size puppetry, music old and new, gender-bending performance art and improvisational techniques, creating new meanings for circus while continuing to entertain crowds of all ages throughout the city streets, gardens, parks, and playgrounds.
Circus Amok invites the audience to envision a more empowered life of community interaction while enjoying a queer celebratory spectacle.
