The OmniCircus ENSEMBLE creates HEAVY-MENTAL CABARET for the weirdly twisted-warped 21st century, for film and stage. Our work integrates human actors, avant-fusion music, surreal life-sized computer-controlled robotics and midi-controlled virtual-reality (VRpit) performers. 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.
