“Janoah…anygoodjokes?” juggles several tasks simultaneously: performing & teaching! During this (optionally interactive) performance YOU learn to juggle while you watch. Between facts, Janoah engagingly guides you through the essentials: throwing, bathing, and messy-ing up!

Precarious unicycle pathways, shimmering puppetry, jaw-dropping juggling, mesmerizing motions… Janoah tosses together art forms to tell a tale of learning & labor, emerging ecstatically from a haphazard pile of props.

And (of course!) what circus would be complete without popcorn & banana peels?

I Think We Are Supposed To Be ‘Coming Of Age’ By Now

This dance and live music show focuses on our ‘Coming of Age’ stories by navigating youthful angst, sexuality, and gender dysphoria in a way that is truly punk in nature. Society wants us to grow up and ‘Come of Age’ in a specific manner. We combat this pressure by wearing bright makeup, light up shoes, blanket capes, high heels, etc. Along with the social commentary on the mid youth identity crisis, we have created a space where people want to bounce and groove with us. This show pushes the boundaries of what contemporary dance can be when set to head banging alternative music. There is something for everyone as these dances flow between head banging punk, sweeping ballroom, subtle sultry, and revival rock.
