A One Man Circus in Winnipeg

WINNIPEG, MB. – Jamie Adkins one-man show, Circus Incognitus, is on now at MTYP.
Whether it’s putting on his pants or walking across a slack rope, Jamie Adkins likes to do things the hard way. His show is definitely not going to go well. He wrangles an animated chair, tussles with a pesky hat, negotiates a precarious slack wire and juggles almost everything.
“The success of Circus Incognitus stems from Jamie Adkins himself, whose skill and charm show in everything he says and does,” says MTYP Artistic Director Pablo Felices-Luna. “You rarely find someone who is so vulnerable, approachable and capable of appearing incompetent at the same time.”

The show was created and will be performed by Jamie Adkins, a San Diego native who now lives in Montreal. He is a veteran circus performer, having worked with Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize. Music is by Lucie Cauchon; costumes by Katrin Leblond; lighting by Nicolas Descôteaux with Angelica Schwartz as Stage Manager.

Adkins has made over 500 performances of Circus Incognitus. “The loose-limbed, swivel-hipped Adkins is a Chaplinesque demonstration of physical comedy that charms while it astonishes.” — Winnipeg Free Press “Jamie Adkins’ ONE-MAN MARVEL of a show blends clowning and vaudeville in ways that are subtle, clever and moving.” — The Guardian
