Circus Of The Scars

July 16, 2023 8:45 pm - 10:45 pm

Feature Documentary/2022/USA/95min/Directed by Chicory Wees

WA Premiere

Seattle gave two gifts to the world in the nineties: grunge and The Jim Rose Circus. 

Gathering a motley crew of performers Jim Rose – a showman and master of hype – relaunched and redefined the circus sideshow for the modern era. 

Pulling together performers like the Amazing Lifto, The Enigma, Tim Cridland, Matt the Tube Crowley, and Bebe the Circus Queen, The Jim Rose Circus mastered their art in bars and theatres before achieving global success / infamy. 

In this eye-popping documentary, Cory Wees tells the story of the touring sideshow and the people who made it happen, with contributions from performers and some great archive footage.
