“CIRCUS OF CIRCUS” REIMAGINES ORWELL’S “ANIMAL FARM”
AS CIRCUS SPECTACULAR
On October 1st, Lady Circus’s Kae Burke unveils her newest creation Circus of Circus at the House of Yes theatre in Brooklyn.
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.”
With performances every Thursday, Friday and Saturday the first three weeks of October, Circus of Circus explores the evils of show biz with snappy dialogue, glamorous costumes and intricate choreography Directed by Rachel Klein with music provided by Benjamin Ickies of This Ambitious Orchestra with his vintage jazz ensemble.
Written and Produced by Kae Burke of House of Yes and Lady Circus, The all-star cast includes seasoned performers of the circus and stage including Benjamin Cerf of Reverend Billy’s Choir, Ashley Monroe of Silky Sirens Burlesque, Sarah Bell of FUCT comedy troupe, master acrobat Ryan Murray Shinji, fire performer Evgenia Radilova, aerial-contortionist Natasha Ortiz, and Eric Schmalenberger of Rachel Klein Productions as well as David Slone, Shannon Turner, Valton Jackson, Angela Harriell and the Love Show Dancers.
