Nothing's ever been quite as intriguing to me as a clown. I think it has something to do with the eerie looks a lot of them give while performing, and their faces disguised in white makeup. So when I came across this flyer announcing local Circus Artists performing at recently opened club O1 (formerly Pearl,on the second floor of Nikki Beach) on Saturday, I had to take a closer look.
CircX is said to combine raving inter-actors with dancers, corporeal mime, European clowning, street theater and burlesque. Will they be dangling from the ceiling? Blowing fire? Is the flyer merely a prediction of the troupe being submersed in water? So many questions pop up upon just looking at the above image. They look like some sort of mime/clown hybrid, and I'd be curious to
see how the Cirque du Soleil-inspired performers take on the O1 space.
