About the Project

Circus Amok, a New York-based, alternative queer circus troupe, addressed issues such as the environment, health care, education, homophobia, racism, human rights, public space, and distribution of resources via a series of performances in 1996.


Directed by Jennifer Miller, the series constituted a mad spectacle of theater, frivolity, and information, as the performances were staged in community gardens, vacant lots, and city parks throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. Money Amok, the central performance, grappled with the rapidly growing divide between the wealthy and the poor in the United States.
