Circo Quirko

2021. Circo Quirko is a tongue-in-cheek satire created with archival mid-century footage and music. This piece re-contextualizes the normative nature of circuses and circus-like shows in the 20th century. Set to the famously fun song “Papa Love Mambo” by Perry Como, Shelley Carlisle writes and directs this piece to remind us that child endangerment, abuse of animals and discrimination against women is not cool, yet we can chuckle nervously at the story as it bounces along to the soundtrack.
