    The Orphan Circus by Les Sages Fous

    Circus Spectacular
    Nov 7 through Nov 24


    About the show: Among the debris of a scrap yard, between used oil cans, rusted sheet metal, and miscellaneous lost objects, Les Sages Fous invite you to a clandestine rendezvous. Two junk peddlers create a small circus of visual tableaux evoking the life of a cabaret troupe of derelicts and misfits. The dark alley becomes an outlet for dreams, a place where glitter and ash entwine, where magic and mystery are brewed in the trash cans. Underneath the dirt and the rust there are treasures to be found. In the blind spot of the multinational entertainment industry, this little circus is a victory of the poor and the small; a place where the gruesome become the circus beauties, the old and rusted become the acrobats, and where even impossible love can be fulfilled. A haven for orphaned objects, recycled artists, and puppets born strange, this wayward troupe is ruled with an iron fist by none other than the elusive, the fictional, the mysterious impresario, Monsieur P. T. Issimo... himself! Rehabilitation or exploitation? Dream or reality? It is for you to judge, Ladies and Gentlemen!

    After the show, join us in the lobby to make your very own fairy tale character finger puppet!
