Overview

Do you like funky? Hot tubbin’ with your hot cuzzin’ vibes. Jucuzzin’ with your favorite ‘coozins. Featuring bikini line bumps, bumpin’ lines off bikini bums, and the dangers of shaving. We all die together. We all resurrect together. Welcome to Door City. Dorsel Fin City. Infinitely.

A new work that illuminates the absurdity of cruise ships, orange traffic cones, the falsities that we believe, and the false prophets we follow. Funkokomo asks: what’s the difference between dystopia and utopia? My topia and your topia? And that topiary shaped like a phallus?

Funkokomo comes straight from the brains and bodies of the people who wrote the last few sentences. An absurd, experimental performance of dance, theater, clown, bouffon, hybrid, remote, actually in-person, organic calamity.

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.

About the Artist

corps de mimebaby is a half dozen (6) seriously disturbed eggs who just graduated from the Harvard of clown schools with really good grades. We're a Philly based experimental performance company in its infancy, focused on exploding the form and practicing the radical yes. We do things for the shake sake. In nonsense there is strength. We create physically embodied, devised work that highlights the underdogs, the underbellies, the outcasts, the weirdos, the lesser-seen, and the uncharted territories that exist within us and in the world around us.
