Alter Circus presents "Hysterical" (Aug 30)


Contemporary circus, experimental performance, and video projection are the backdrop for Hysterical’s bold account of how women bend and bind themselves to society’s expectations. Hysterical deconstructs the mask that women wear to find safety, intimacy, and success in America. Jessica John, Alter Circus Company’s founder and director, explains that “the show is a postmodern contemporary circus production, which uses the human body as text and feminism as the lens to explore power, gender, and sexuality.

This show contains adult language and sexual content and is best suited for ages 13 and up. There will be a Question & Answer session immediately following the performance.

This work is supported by NECCA's Company in Residence program, which is partially funded by the NEA. This program is a 3 week creation process that included working with Creative Consultant Lauren Feldman. For more information about Alter Circus Company, go to
