March Madness: Double Trouble featuring Ania Upstill & Rachel Resnik

on March 16th, 2023 at Pine Box Rock Shop in Brooklyn

Double the clowns, double the trouble! Clown Gym presents Ania Upstill and Rachel Resnik in a double bill benefiting the Clown Cohort.

TRANSHUMANCE: Award-winning clown Ania Upstill playfully explores what it means to be a trans human in this surreal journey across the landscape of gender.

POPPED OUT: Rachel Resnik performs some very normal and straight forward stand-up comedy and nothing else. With a little help from two friends who are very near and dear to her heart. Literally.

March Madness: Double Trouble is a fundraiser for the Clown Cohort, a year-long mentorship program for aspiring clown teachers that provides skills, coaching, and confidence to experienced and developing teachers, and to strengthen our community by growing and diversifying the roster of clown teachers.

All ticket proceeds will support the program, and we’ll have a raffle and auction on the night (cash or Venmo). Buy a Chest Pass ticket for reserved VIP seating and the sweet, sweet joy of knowing you’re helping clowns thrive.

Measuring in Cartwheels

Do you have it all? Do you know someone who does? Really, like you actually know them? Not Beyoncé. Dinah and Julia do not have it all. But they feel like they should, so they made a show about it. Measuring in Cartwheels: a clowny exploration of having it all.
