"Old-fashioned variety entertainment of the sort Ed Sullivan so astutely scooped up, but with twists.”—New York Times
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus presents My Last Cirkus, an all-new 90-minute circus theater work, created in residency this August at the Spiegeltent. Set against the stunning backdrop of the mirrored jewel-box, Ringmistress Philomena faces fear, aging, and the inevitable pull of the ring. Will she run away from the Cirkus and finally join a town? Featuring a dynamic, world-class cast of contemporary circus artists from an intriguing variety of backgrounds, including former Russian rhythmic gymnastics champion and Cirque du Soleil artist Ekaterina Sknarina; innovative prop manipulator Brian P. Dailey; acrobat and B-boy Richard Maguire; and Bindlestiff cofounders Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelson. Written and scored by Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey and Circus Smirkus composer Peter Bufano; with percussionist and actor Michael Dobson. Directed by physical comedian and star clown of Parallel Exit Physical Theater Company and Big Apple Circus's Step Right Up!
Joel Jeske; in collaboration with Spiegeltent host Michael McQuilken.
