Our show will be a themed cabaret that tracks the lives of People Of Color as they learn to re-start their lives and re-engage with the outside world two years after the onset of a global pandemic. This is a collection of individual stories depicting a range of human emotions and unique challenges faced by POC in the contemporary American landscape. This show will be stripped down, human, and honest, focusing on communicating feelings through movement. Disciplines will include rope, straps, aerial hammock, diabolo, and silks. Show content is PG-13.

The BIPOC Circus Alliance Midwest (BCAM) is a collective of circus practitioners and performing artists dedicated to creating more supportive, inclusive, and representative circus communities by:
- Advocating for equity and inclusion in training, teaching, and performance spaces
- Partnering with circus organizations to implement policy changes designed to increase BIPOC representation and inclusion within customers/students and staff
- Celebrating and amplifying BIPOC stories in circus
- Creating community, support, and mutual positive encouragement for BIPOC circus practitioners and performers
- Creating opportunities for circus practitioners of color to create, collaborate, and perform together
Since our formation in 2020 we have produced performances, facilitated discussions on race and circus with over 20 circus organizations, and provided focused consultation to circus organizations looking to diversify their spaces.
