SHINKOYO CIRCUS/CIRCUS JERKUS is a week-long musical circus curated in parts by Doron Sadja of SHINKOYO and Matt Mehlan of SKELETONS: “Circus Jerkus runs the gamut from improvised solo/ensemble performances and simultaneous overlapping projects to live film projections, light shows, ventriloquism and surveillance monitoring.” The show runs roughly 2 hours each evening and includes a cornucopia of musicians, including band members of Zs, Extra Life, Talibam and many more.
