Circus of the Bizarre 

Thursday, Jun 11 2009
Never has running away to join the circus been more fetching an option — modern circus folk can be sexy! Exciting! Well-adjusted! Cirque Berzerk is in town, with seven performances per weekend during its run at the soon-to-be-closed State Historic Park. Founded in 2005 at Burning Man, the troupe boasts a cast and crew of 150, including very sassy acrobats and aerialists, astonishing men on stilts, nauseating contortionists and magicians who'll make your sense of propriety disappear. Enjoy the nightly wrap parties in the Berzerk Lounge, the seething/seedy stylings of Vaud & the Villains, the voluptuousness, the surreality and the fire, fire, fire. You get a 10 percent discount if you come by public transport, and a part of merchandising sales goes to Marriage Equality Rights in California. Kids 9 to 90 are welcome — but parental discretion is advised!
Thursdays, Fridays, 8:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 7 & 10 p.m.; Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 18. Continues through July 26, 2009
