Hey Ya'll Cabaret! NY!: A Circus Tribute to OutKast July 27
Posted July 24, 2013
This unique circus show will take traditional elements of circus and aerial performance and mash them up with the hard beats and rhymes of two of the most celebrated Hip Hop Artists in America.
Hey Ya'll Cabaret NY will have amazing performances by:
Paris the Hip Hop Juggler
The Uncle Junior Project is a feature-length documentary that weaves the story of wild animal trainer Emanuel "Junior" Ruffin, with Veronica Blair's journey across America to document and archive relatively unknown African-American circus performers. The film through intimate interviews will capture their unique stories of life on the road, and under the big top. What inspired them to run away with the circus and how we fit into an ostracized realm of entertainment where African-American performers are not traditionally present.
Research and pre-production for TUJP began in October 2010. In mid-January 2011, we began filming. Our first artist profile was on Paris the Hip Hop Juggler from Harlem NY, after a day of shooting we knew we had something special. Since then we have completed 20 interviews in six cities, but we still have a long way to go. All proceeds from the Hey Ya'll Cabaret will go towards filming and editing expenses for the TUJP.
Come out, have fun, and be entertained by some of the nation's finest performers! All while supporting a great film!
