Following a run of sold-out shows last fall, Circ X returned with another three provocative performances on June 26 and 27. The local troupe combined components of burlesque, comedy, music and circus into an interactive cabaret experience. The events tackled themes of sexuality, objectification and gender fluidity.

In addition to acrobats soaring through the air and a Charlie Chaplin-inspired musical number, bearded men dressed in drag roamed the audience, asking attendees to describe the performance. See what they had to say and view excerpts of the performances in the video above.
