About this event

The gender binary: isn't it bizarre? Come dive into the absurd as we follow one clown's magical journey across the landscape of gender in search of a place to call home. Join NYC-based circus artist Ania Upstill in this playful, heartfelt exploration of gender as they dare to imagine a world in-between.

What does it mean to exist between two locations? To travel in between? To find your place in the middle? Come laugh at a clown's playful exploration of what it means to be a trans human.

'Transhumance' is on an international tour to FronteraFest in Austin, TX; NZ Fringe in Wellington, NZ and Auckland Fringe in Auckland, NZ.
