Back to School Show (2004)

Circus Amok's Back to School Show, performed in diverse NYC parks and public spaces, offers a critique of standardization and accountability both within the public school system and the Republican administration's role in the Iraq War. Through the motif of a new academic year, and in the context of the U.S. presidential elections, the show poses a public call to civic empowerment and critical thinking, claiming social justice in a joyful extravaganza of acrobatic artistry, satiric skill, and good old-fashioned circus fun.
