After the pandemic forced the cancellation of Cirque of the Dead 2020, the Boston Circus Guild started working in January of 2021 with renewed excitement to bring this beloved production back to life.
By late summer, Covid concerns were still ever-present. In September, without a venue or a clear path on how to pursue a high-quality show both safely and responsibly, the production was once again put on hold.
But some of the performers felt inspired by the quirky spirit of Cirque of the Dead and motivated by the opportunity to create something new.
So in October, these performers began creation on a new version of Cirque of the Dead...
This entire project was completed in just under 2 months, from initial creation to final video editing. It was organized entirely by the artists you see in the film, with the help of a small crew of entirely volunteer support. 100% of the enormous amount of time, energy and resources were donated by cast and crew out of a love and passion for circus arts, for Cirque of the Dead, and for the chance to create something fun and quirky that can bring joy and laughter to others.
