Due to personal reasons Ricochet, the team of Laura Stokes and Cohdi Harrell, are no longer able to perform at Brilliant Corners. We hope to see them soon and wish them the best. Fortunately The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has stepped in to present the 7pm show in the Magic City tent September 16-18.
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has toured the world since 1994, reminding audiences of all ages that the immediacy, intimacy and viscerality of live entertainment can never be experienced in front of a media screen. The roots of Bindlestiff’s style extend deep into NYC’s underground community of drag queens, pranksters, political activists and arts outsiders, while embodying a deep understanding and appreciation of the history of American popular entertainment and the illegitimate theater traditions of vaudeville, music hall, burlesque and sideshow. In addition to bringing the Cirkus show to festivals and theaters all over the world, other Bindlestiff activities include The Cavalcade of Youth, a professional showcase for emerging circus and variety artists under the age of 21; running Cirkus Skills afterschool programs in NYC and the Hudson Valley; producing the New York City Unicycle Festival, and with Modern Myth Cinema, documenting the sawdust and glitter of Cirkus Life in “The Bindlestiffs”.www.bindlestiff.org www.TheBindlestiffs.com
