Spin your world upside-down with Topsy-Turvy Queer Circus! This one-of-a-kind event is back for a second year of mesmerizing performances that showcase awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping circus artists from across the country.

Topsy-Turvy’s geographically and culturally diverse cast of queer, trans*, and gender-variant circus performers use their bodies to tell unique stories that subvert traditional ideals of beauty, sexuality, and power. Building upon the Bay Area’s rich history of dance, burlesque, drag, and performance arts, Topsy-Turvy provides financially accessible, physically inspiring theater that pushes the boundaries of contemporary circus artistic expression.

Topsy-Turvy 2013 featured artists from the Bay Area, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Portland, and Vermont including Cirque du Soleil performer Marshall Amey and Honey Mahogany from RuPaul’s Drag Race. The event became a sell-out success as the first all-queer circus show in San Francisco and is excited to return as part of the 2014 National Queer Arts Festival.
