One Part Circus, Two Parts Burlesque, a Pinch of Class and a Dash of Trash; Circ X rocks The Fillmore @ the Jackie Gleason Theater.
As seen on the Travel Channel, Univision and Deco Drive, Circ X has traveled the globe with their unique brand of whimsical interactive entertainment, outrageous burlesque productions and theatrical circus artistry.
For the past decade, Circ X has perform for some of the top Fortune 500 companies, as well as the country hottest night clubs and cabarets. Now, as we approach our 10th Anniversary, we strive to produce our largest spectacular to date. Calling Miami, Florida home, we've chosen the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater.
After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation in 2007, The Fillmore now features the biggest names in the recording industry. Rich in live entertainment history, The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater is the perfect venue for Circ X to celebrate a decade as Miami's most innovative and provocative entertainment companies.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Due to Kickstarter's "All or Nothing" funding policy, we have decided to play it safe and set our goal to the bare minimum of what it would take to realize this production. However the more money we raise, the more spectacular the show can be. Ideally we would like to raise enough funds to make it a monthly residency, although for right now we are focusing on our first production at this Theater.
After the Kickstarter and Credit Card fees averaging 10% of the total money raised, plus all of the raw building material and supplies for our rewards, we are left with total operation budget of less than 4000.00. Around half of that will go to technical production cost, including video production, tech, costumes and marketing. What's left will go into paying our cast of 15 to 20 performers. Needless to say, the more money we raise the bigger the cast and the bigger the show.
Fortunately, the Fillmore is just as excited with us about this production as we are and is partnering with us in absorbing some of the cost. I wont bore you with a spread sheet here, but please feel free to email me directly with any questions. =)
WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE THIS?!?
Our Production is scheduled for sometime in late September or early October. Because we need to work around all the mega concerts that book up the theater, an exact date is still T.B.D.; although, we plan to keep you posted throughout our journey. Keep checking for updates. We should have a set date by mid August.
WHAT WILL WE EXPERIENCE!?!
Even with the minimum funding raised, we plan to produce a spectacle with over a dozen Circ X trained performers, from aerialists to buffoons.
An intoxicating revival in night life entertainment, you will experience a vanguard twist on the art of Vaudeville.
Featuring, lavish choreography, outrageous theatrics, dynamic circus acts and avant-garde burlesque.
We will welcome you to our world where nightlife and theater collide, as our performers seduce and harass you throughout the evening. If you're lucky, you may just be pulled on stage to be part of the show!
