We are in dark times…
Dependence on oil and unchecked consumerism has driven us past the brink of environmental collapse. Civilization as we know it has ended.
What remains is a troupe of 11 performers touring the territory originally known as the United States. Traveling from city to fallen city, we are gathering a community of survivors in our effort to rebuild a sustainable society.
This post-apocalyptic landscape is the backdrop for the Criss Cross Circus summer tour. These 11 Hampshire College students are driving from east to west in a colorful, rusted old school bus that runs on used vegetable oil.
While the setting is tragic, it is with the humor and magic of circus that we hope to entertain and educate audiences across America.
