Clowns Without Borders
August 13th  -  8pm

Clowns Without Borders Brooklyn NYC Circus

Join Clowns Without Borders for an evening of circus performance at The Muse. Come experience the joy of circus and learn how we use laughter to transform communities in crisis. Watch a performance of acrobats, jugglers, aerialists, and clowns. Hear artists share their stories about performing in refugee camps and conflict zones worldwide.

Doors open at 7:30pm
Tickets on a sliding scale: $5 - $25


In places where resources are scarce, laughter can be abundant. Clowns Without Borders (CWB) brings small teams of professional artists to perform in refugee camps, conflict zones, and sites of natural disaster.
In 1993, a letter from Croatian refugees to Spanish clown Tortell Pontrona sparked engagement. “You know what we miss most? We miss laughter.” From there, CWB was born. Since then, it has grown to an international NGO, with chapters in 14 countries, reaching over 400,000 displaced children a year.
Our work takes us to the beaches of Lesvos, Greece, the hills of rural El Salvador, the deserts of South Sudan. Though the audience changes, the result is the same. An invitation to play is sometimes all that is needed to help recapture a sense of childhood. We are reminded time and time again, that we all laugh in the same language.
Like laughter, our impact ripples outward, energizing children and the adults who care for them. In a world often divided and stark, Clowns Without Borders proudly co-creates and collaborates cross-culturally.
Come learn about how laughter creates community and builds resilience.

Dump Trump - Justice Avengers and the Orange Menace  - The Muse Circus ABCirque

ABCirque is BACK this September putting on the cirque burlesque political satire performance of your dreams!!

This show defies expectations, destroys gender and social norms, and gets in more than a few good jabs at our horror-show president. Justice Avengers is an interactive show that confronts real-life injustices and challenges its audience to work together to solve problems -- with a little help from a cast of gravity-defying superheroes.

But this show is as risqué as it is subversive. All of our superheroes are just a little bit off the social norm. It celebrates difference in true circus style -- by dressing it up in spandex, handing it a microphone, and embracing whatever happens next!

Imagined, designed, and co-created by a team of NYC’s best acrobats, dancers, and rigging experts, Justice Avengers and the Orange Menace is an immersive adventure and an opportunity to the outer limits of possibility.

Sunday, September 17th

The experience begins at 7:30pm....
