Come celebrate and explode gender and other constructs at this new variety show! What does gender have to do with acrobatics, burlesque, puppetry, sideshow, and spinach? Nothing! Everything!

Tickets available here (and a little cheaper in advance!):

The premiere of [n]Gender, a 2018 winner of Bindlestiff Family Cirkus’s First of May Award, will range from the bawdy to the spiritual to the psychedelic. Let your freak flag fly. If you don’t have a freak flag, we’ll help you make one.

Program made possible, in part, by support from Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc. and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
