The OmniCircus ENSEMBLE creates HEAVY-MENTAL CABARET for the weirdly twisted-warped 21st century, for film and stage.

The Robotic Ensemble of the OmniCircus is a surreal red-light district, a troupe of mechanical beggars, hookers, junkies and street-preachers who appeared in our shows and engaged in mysterious cyborg guerrilla theater on the city streets.
