Isabella Rossellini’s Link Link Circus at Bard
LINK LINK CIRCUS
Isabella Rossellini is “the best professor you could ever imagine: witty, lovely to watch.” —New York Magazine
Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini takes inspiration from the natural world in her new theatrical lecture, addressing the latest scientific discoveries about animal minds, intelligence, and emotions. With Pan, her trained dog, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, B. F. Skinner, and Charles Darwin to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.
Rosellini brings Link Link Circus to the Bard Fisher Center’s Sosnoff Theater this Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices start at $25 and are available at http://fishercenter.bard.edu or by calling the box office at (845) 758-7900.

Ape Girl at Coney Island Film Festival
Cris Siquiera is a force of nature- she LOVES sideshow, and she worked for 5 years to make this film about the sideshow attraction known as Girl to Gorilla. It’s huge in her home country of Brazil, and there is known as “Monga” – monkey girl. We love her!
Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin
“Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin”, directed by Corn Mo, is an hour of preposterous magic, including blindfolded targeting with a knife, live fish appearing from nowhere, and things you never knew could be done with creamed corn. Logic and laws of nature guaranteed violated! ALSO: this will be the world premiere of an illusion starring my dog Stormy.
The show is all-ages, but it is aimed at adults and may not be suitable for children under 7.
Congratulations to the 2018 First of May Award Winners!
Announcing the winners of Bindlestiff’s 2018 First of May Award!! Since our first award in 2012, decision-making has gotten tougher and tougher. 14 artists, among NYC’s best and brightest, submitted proposals for consideration this year.
In 2018, four prizes, totaling $3,000, were awarded. Matt Roper and Ekaterina Sknarina with “The Mr. Matt and Miss Ekaterina Show” and Shane Miclon with “The Preconceived Notions of Dr. Pellucida” will each receive $1,000. Paris Sirap with as-yet-untitled comedy juggling show, and Christopher Scheer with “(n)Gender” will each receive $500. In addition to this financial award, Bindlestiff offers First of May awardees benefits such as promotional support, production mentorship, and access to NYC’s Materials for the Arts to secure free props and supplies.
The 2018 First of May Award jury panel included former First of May Award recipients Adam Kuchler, Deborah Lohse, and Justin Weber; Playful Productions founder and circus producer Viveca Gardiner; entertainment booker and Bindlestiff Board of Directors member Michael Bongar; entertainment booker, marketing expert and Bindlestiff Advisory Board member Tina Bongar; Big Apple Circus co-founder and Bindlestiff Board of Directors member Paul Binder; and Bindlestiff co-founder Keith Nelson.
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus salutes the jury panel members and all 14 applicants for their work in the circus and variety community, and in NYC’s cultural life.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
Happy World Circus Day from the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus! This year, circuses around the globe are celebrating the 250th anniversary of modern circus. Bindlestiff is proud to be part of this tradition, and we’re glad to see growing recognition for our art form and its beauty, skill, and social role. This photo by Maike Schulz was taken at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival last summer, when circus was honored on the National Mall.
Bindlestiff’s next show is coming up at The Cutting Room in NYC, May 23-27!
