Come and See For Yourselves (2000)

Circus Amok's show "Come and See for Yourselves," performed in 2000 in diverse NYC parks and public spaces, revolves around political, social and economic issues at play in American society. Poverty, the monopoly of resources and other economic inequalities, along with police brutality, unequal rights for ethnic minorities and queer communities, environmental issues, political oppression, trigger-happy urban violence, and American foreign policies are some of the topics here exposed. Through the unveiling of these issues in a joyful circus context, the piece is an open call for civic activism and empowerment, a demand for justice and for a revision of the coordinates of American democracy. Video footage shot in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn.
