After founding her own circus/theatre company: Circus Amok, working in the real Side Show at Coney Island, being the subject of a documentary ("Juggling Gender") and receiving numerous write-ups in the New York Times, what more is there to do than to tell her story? And, that's exactly what audiences will get when director, circus performer, and well, bearded lady, Jennifer Miller presents her first solo performance, Morphadike: The Personal Show at NY's Dixon Place, Mar. 5-20.
In the course of eating glass, juggling machetes, and other classic side show riffs, Miller will examine her own role against the history of human oddities on display.
The downtown performance institution, Dixon Place, helped launch the careers of such luminary solo performers as John Leguizamo (Freak), and Holly Hughes (Clit Notes), as well as the world famous Blue Man Group.
For tickets ($12) or more information, call (212) 219-3088.
