Circus of Circus

by Kae Burke

directed by Rachel Klein

Nick Brooks 

Adapted from George Orwell’s anti-totalitarian novella Animal Farm, Circus of Circus is presented as a darkly humorous satire on the performance industry told through the strife of entertainers in a corrupt circus. Set in the middle of the Great Depression, the show combines dazzling musical theatrics and circus spectacles set to original parodies of jazz standards. The multi-talented cast of contortionists, aerialists, acrobats, actors, burlesque dancers, and fire performers parallel the characters of the original Animal Farm as they overthrow their ringmaster and band together to form their own troupe where “all performers are equal- but some are more equal than others.”
