The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus initially launched “Flatbed Follies,” a new concept in live entertainment, during the summer of 2021 with the aim of employing artists and performers whose livelihoods have been affected by COVID and to bring performing arts to neighborhoods that were hit hardest by COVID as a way to bring celebration to the streets. The show features variety performances by exceptional local talent on the brand new “Flatbed Follies” stages.
