ReFlection is a story of self-acceptance through the lens of a transmasculine experience and the milestones that shape how he views himself and the world around him. Through a powerful combination of circus arts, dance, and cinematic storytelling, we experience the joys and challenges of this deeply personal journey. As our protagonist learns to embrace his truth, we explore a time when what he sees in the mirror does not yet reflect who he is and thus reminding us of the lessons of love and trust that are dynamically essential to our lives.

Panel Pick! Panel Pick! ReFlection is the winner of the inaugural CSAW Award for New Circus Work from an Artist of Color at Cannonball, and was selected by a panel of working BIPOC circus professionals. 

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.
