LOVE, TRAGEDY - A SPECTACULAR ARTISTIC STUDENT LIFESTYLE PUBLICATION

A cut-rate magic act, a tragic pantomime horse, acrobats, jugglers, singers in harlequin costumes, a unicyclist, a bearded lady and a striptease artist held the center ring on April 13 under a tent of fabric strips in the Willard Straight Hall Memorial Room.The event, "Awkward Circus," was the latest presentation of Awkward, the artistic student lifestyle publication on campus whose projects present an alternative to traditional printed matter. "We wanted to make the publication a whole show, and one story [...] it wasn’t meant to have explicit meanings, but rather be rich enough in its content and touch on enough subjects to evoke different things for everyone who sees it." -Cornell Chronicle, April 2009

AWKWARD Circus took place at Cornell University on April 13th, 2009 on three hourly intervals.
