Brooklyn Abridged May 30-June 9
Posted May 24, 2019
Bindlestiff Family Cirkus presents Brooklyn Abridged, a highly stylized visual and aural journey through the beautiful borough of Brooklyn, where citizens, civil servants, and visitors showcase individual artistry set against iconic landmarks. Combining history, humor, and heart, this unusual ensemble fuses circus arts, original live music, and live analog projections into intertwined vignettes. Each act takes us on a personal adventure with a unique visual approach, as individual residents of the borough magically seize opportunities to portray their personal stories. Together they fuel the furnace and stir the cauldron that is the energy, diversity, and beauty of Brooklyn.
