We, the founders, Boards of Directors and Advisors, and Staff of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus condemn racism and the underlying structure of white supremacy embodied in our current political, economic, and judicial systems.
Our focus is always supporting our community of artists through Monday night performances, connecting with youth and family service through Cirkus After School in response to COVID-19, and listening to Black leadership in our community for what’s next.
We understand that Black Lives Matter and will continue to stand alongside our Black community in support.
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus joins thousands of other arts organizations, sports teams, educational institutions, businesses, and agencies in the effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Effective immediately, all live events are postponed indefinitely. We will honor advance ticket purchases when the events are rescheduled, or please contact your your original ticketing purchase platform for other options.
If you would like to donate to Bindlestiff, we are sincerely grateful. Please visit bindlestiff.org/support/
All Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School programs will be moving to a privately accessible YouTube channel so that children and families in our NYC and Columbia County sites can have twice-weekly doses of DIY Cirkus fun to try at home.
Trust that we will be continuing to do what we love, so that when we all get together again we’ll be able to bring the joy and wonder back at full blast.
