It brings audiences of ALL AGES into a live version of a classic silent film. Inspired by greats such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, it follows the story of a young man attempting to build a purposeful life in the Big Apple. We have brought our passion for circus arts to this story, and have built a world full of magic. We wanted to use this show to reflect on our experience moving to Manhattan as young artists, and attempting to find connections in a city that isn’t always friendly. We hope to speak to the timeless nature of growing up and finding one's place in the world, with a wink and a nudge. This hilarious journey is set to live music, told with acrobatics, illusions, physical comedy and never-before seen slapstick aerial stunts.
It went through 6 months of development. We have been fortunate enough to develop in part at ExchangeNYC's The Orchard Project in early July. We then showcased the first rendition of it at "Cirque it" Festival (American circus festival in Pennsylvania) in late July. In August, we sold out a three week run at Dixon Place, who has been an invaluable partner in the process, and given us the space and room to build this show over the past six months.
