Join Sir Cupcake, veteran circus performer/director Jack Stocklynn, in his inaugural convening of the best of Portland's queer circus community in a ridiculous, vaudevillian exploration of our queer past. "Sir Cupcake's Queer Circus Goes Back in Time" is an immersive delight with fresh, campy and hilarious acts. Tickets ($15) are available now at www.sircupcake.com and Brown Paper Tickets for performances on May 8-9 at Echo Theater at 8 p.m. Performances will be ASL interpreted and are wheelchair accessible.|
Sir Cupcake, always running late, tries to use his magic pocket-watch to make it to his show on time but finds himself and his queer circus back in the 1930s instead. Luckily, they are just in time for his ancestor's, queer singer ER Martin's, own show! Circus queers past and present join together for a once in a lifetime performance with aerialists, acrobats, clowns, burlesque, and more. Neighboring acrobatic couples find love across the fence, a magician's assistant gets her revenge, a handsome marathon swimmer finally finds true love and ER Martin gets a life changing telegram. Featuring cupcakes (of course!) and special guest performances by renowned burlesque artist Pidgeon von Tramp (Seattle) and world traveling hand balancer Brittany Walsh (May 8, only).
Sir Cupcake's Queer Circus celebrates queer and trans identities with storytelling and performances by queer and trans people and their allies. This project is supported by the Echo Theater Company, community donations and a generous grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
