Sunday June 4th @ Brooklyn Bazaar
The Orbiting Human Circus (of The Air) featuring The Music Tapes
Both an immersive theatrical experience and a musical show, this evening commemorates the release of The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air), a fictional narrative podcast created by Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel) and presented by the creators of Welcome to Night Vale (one of the most downloaded podcasts of all time). Spend an evening with the show’s lead character, the hapless Janitor of the Eiffel Tower—played by Koster—who will attempt, and fail, to clean this very venue, as surreal events, songs (by the Music Tapes), and magic simply happen all around him (and you). Debuting in the top ten on iTunes’ podcast charts, the podcast—a combination of cinematic audio narrative, song, and sound collage—has reached a loving cult fandom all over the world, has been featured in The New York Times, Pitchfork, and Spin, and was named one of The Guardian’s top podcasts of 2016.
