Cirque of the Dead 2019

OBERON

Follow the Boston Circus Guild’s “paranormal investigation team” as they explore the dark recesses of a haunted theater to look for evidence of evil spirits and nefarious creatures that manifest in the shadows. Ghosts, ghouls, and creatures from beyond the grave will fill the evening with never-before-seen circus acts including aerials, acrobatics, hand balancing, and more. This immersive, adults-only Halloween spectacular is not for the faint of heart, but is filled with as much humor as it is with horror. Take to the dance floor for an incredible view of the performers suspended above you and lurking all around the venue. Sit back and enjoy a custom cocktail at our table seats while getting up-close and personal with an acrobatic monstrosity. Fall under the spell of the high-energy Synthrock and nerd-nostalgia band Minusworld, and dance the night away to their live music. The action happens all around you—every spot in the theater is a unique experience! Want to be part of the show? Come dressed in your Halloween finest and enter into our Instagram costume contest using #CIRQUEOFTHEDEAD. This show is 18+ only, due to graphic/disturbing content. Please note that this production uses strobe and haze effects. Tickets at https://americanrepertorytheater.org/shows-events/cirque-of-the-dead-2019/ Tickets: $30-$55

LEX the Lexicon Artist

LEX the Lexicon Artist makes high-energy rap music for the mind. Plagued with self-repression, neurotic ambition, and delusions of grandeur, Taiwanese-American rapper, writer, and creator Alex Sun Liu created LEX in 2016 to shield polite society from her most socially unacceptable attributes, by bringing them onstage instead. With a comically narcissistic persona and a domineering stage presence, LEX delivers surgically precise rapid-fire rap lyrics about nerd culture, personal identity, and the depths of the human mind. LEX is ugly and real, and speaks to the minds of misfits everywhere. A lifelong academic overachiever, social pariah, and pop culture fanatic, LEX creates music and live experiences for the world’s brainy outcasts who want to find somewhere they belong.

Super Smack

Super Smack is on a mission to bring world peace through geeky hip-hop music. Fusing boom-bap, chiptune, trap, and jazz, Smack has earned the title “The Nintendo Switch of Rappers” for his vibrant style and knack for joy. He lives in New York City and is from Los Angeles, so both coasts are in his DNA. Smack has performed at SXSW Nerdcore Dayz, Brooklyn Comic-Con, and Off-Broadway. He’s an alum of Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal’s BARS WORKSHOP and also performs with the irreverent freestyle team NORTH COAST. His videogame-inspired album NEON RED is being released in Fall 2019.

Minusworld

Formed in 2005, Synthrock band MINUSWORLD loves big, high-energy synth/guitar riffs matched with driving dance and rock rhythms. Fronted by Melissa Carubia on vocals and keytar, with Michael Hawver on guitar, John Fraley on bass and Dave Green on drums, we play tracks that emphasize fun and nerd-nostalgia. Our audiences delight as they unlock "Mini-Songs" throughout our shows--short covers of famous video game, television, and movie themes. Our newest EP entitled DANCING IN THE ASHES, available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music (et al.), features all of this in the title track: a song about surviving the zombie apocalypse through the power of dance. Recently, we have made appearances at Boston Circus Guild’s CIRQUE OF THE DEAD, Boston's Sci-Fi/Fantasy convention, Arisia, and at the MAGFest Jamspace stage at PAX East.

Sarah Donner

Sarah Donner is an alt pop singer/songwriter who has embraced her inner cat lady. Her songs teeter back and forth between playful, nerd core, and ballads, all tied together with bright melodies and driving, energetic instrumentals. Sarah Donner’s music has been featured on Conan O'Brien's blog, NPR, Buzzfeed, i09, Showtime, and CBS. "Sarah Donner and the Sleepy Kitten" and "The Motherf**cking Pterodactyl Song" (co-written with The Oatmeal) catapulted Sarah into weblebrity status with over four million views on YouTube alone.

Sarah Donner is a graduate of Westminster Choir College. After stretching her legs with musical theatre, she picked up a guitar, abandoned her classical roots, and started rocking out (with fantastic breath support). When she is not touring, Sarah Donner fosters kittens, teaches privately, and paints portraits.

Cirque of the Dead
Oct

to Nov 1

Cirque of the Dead

“The sense of escapism Cirque of the Dead represents, gory and grim as it may be, is invaluable and beautifully articulated with supreme commitment to physical flights of fancy. Cirque of the Dead is absolutely your speed if you’re in the mood for horror movies, fake blood, boobs, and leotards.”

—NEW ENGLAND THEATRE GEEK

Join us this Halloween season for Cirque of the Dead, a naughty nightmare of circus spectacle!

This year, we turn the page on a new chapter and invite you to a grim Choose Your Own Adventure – zombies, vampires, haunted delights and other magical creatures will fill the evening with never-before-seen aerial acts, acrobatics, and more. This seductive adults-only Halloween horror spectacular is not for the faint of heart, but is filled with as much humor as it is with gore.

Immerse yourself in the festivities while performers suspend themselves above you and lurk all around the venue. Sit back and enjoy a custom cocktail while getting up-close and personal with an acrobatic monstrosity. Fall under the spell of the high-energy Synthrock and nerd-nostalgia band Minusworld and dance the night away to their live music. Fall into the story and help seek the light in a world of darkness and mischief.

Want to be part of the show? Come dressed in your Halloween finest and enter into our Instagram costume contest using #CIRQUEOFTHEDEAD.

This show is 18+ only, due to graphic / disturbing content.
Please note that this production uses strobe and haze effects.
