The Preconceived Notions of Dr. Pellucida

Sunday, April 28th 2019

Doors at 7:30 PM

Program made possible, in part, by support from Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc. and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.png

Conspiracy theorist Dr. Pellucida has gathered evidence from all around the world over many years suggesting the existence of two mysterious beings who seem to come and go through space and time, appearing briefly to dazzle onlookers with displays of juggling, acrobatics, and raw sexual potency, then vanishing as quickly as they appeared. Who are they? Why are they here? What do they want? Where did they get those short shorts? Dr. Pellucida attempts to answer these questions and more in his desperate quest to uncover the truth.

Watch NYC's finest circus troupe, ABCirque, juggle, flip, and fly high with aerial acrobatics! But that's not all; stick around afterwards because then it'll be YOUR turn to take center-ring! 45 minutes of show-time followed by 45 minutes of play-time with the pro's: take a swing in an aerial hammock, hula-hoop your heart out, juggle everything in sight, and then pose with the stars for the photographic proof you need to show off to your friends!

This is it, kids: you get to SEE IT then TRY IT! Stretch those wings; this is your BIG chance to fly away with the circus (just in time to head home for dinner with the fam, of course)

ABCirque & Brendan Speltz Present:


A unique immersive performance of Steve Reich’s 20th century minimal masterpiece of the same name, Different Trains includes electronics and live musicians, accompanied by stunning cirque-style choreography.

Reich wrote Different Trains while contemplating his childhood train trips in the 1940’s between New York and Los Angeles. As a Jewish man, it occurred to him that similar train trips in Europe during that time had a very different and haunting implication. In three movements, Different Trains strikes an emotional connection through its narrative, whilst live music forms a dramatic soundscape that transports you to a time of instability and doubt. This show is darkly nostalgic, profoundly devastating, gut wrenching and ultimately hopeful.

Within today's precarious socio-political environment, this piece offers deeply personal and urgent lessons from the past.
