Cirque Berzerk

Thanks to a tip from our intrepid writer Lori, I recently checked out the Cirque Berzerk website, and is it wild!  They inform us:

It’s been called everything from “a circus on acid” to “French burlesque meets Sweeney Todd.” Cirque Berzerk’s unique flavor of adult psychedelic vaudevillian tomfoolery returns to the Los Angeles State Historic Park. Performances run Thursday, June 18th through Sunday, July 5th, 2009.


The Cirque includes acrobats, aerialists, stilt walkers, dancers, contortionists, clowns, and more — it sounds like a punk rock cross between Cirque du Soleil and mid-90s Lollapalooza.  If you’re in Los Angeles, why not check it out?  And if you do, report back, please!
