ABOUT
Bindlestiff Family Cirkus’ mission is to bring joy and wonder into the world. Whether virtual or in face-to-face interactions, we cultivate, develop, and sustain the circus and variety arts. We invite the community to this tea party gala to celebrate the performing arts. While sharing tea time with each other, we will be generating support for the arts.
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus holds its principal fundraising event this year in a novel way- as a virtual tea party hosted by entertainment powerhouse Jonathan Lee Iverson, the first Black Ringmaster of the iconic Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.
Live performances include music by renowned circus composer Peter Bufano (Circus Smirkus, Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Midnight Circus, Big Apple Circus) and emerging wire-walker Logan Kerr. A silent auction, launching October 1, 2020, will feature select items including framed artwork by painter Mary Brenneman; autographed copies of books by authors Hovey Burgess and Hudson Talbott; unique precious jewelry by Shana Lee, and more.
The funds raised will support basic operations of Bindlestiff’s three main areas of programming:
Youth and Community Programs including Cirkus After School, Coarc Cirkus, the Cavalcade of Youth, and the New York City Unicycle Festival
Platforms for emerging artists like Bindlestiff’s Open Stage Variety Show and The First of May Award
Live, original circus productions including our annual NYC Cabaret season, the Cabin Fever Cabaret, and touring work.
