Ghostly Circus: Black Box Paradox

August 10 @ 7:00 pm

$35 – $75
The Ghostly Circus lives again for its latest otherworldly production, “Black Box Paradox.”
August 10th @ 7:00pm
August 11th @ 3:00pm
Celebrating it’s tenth year, the Ghostly Circus will debut an effervescent show featuring manipulations never quite seen before at a new historic location, FringeArts, Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance, presenting progressive, world-class art that expands the imagination and boldly defies expectations.
Black Box Paradox prompts us to think about the possible near future when most analytics will be outsourced to fully-automated semi-intelligent systems that will resemble Black Box algorithms with their decision-making logic being mostly opaque to us. Looking at this decade old question from InternetSociety.org, here is the paradox: how can you trust the generated secrets if you can’t tell how the box was made? This has us extending the question: what are we actually looking at?
The Ghostly Circus is site-specific theatrical platform for artists to build their acts encompassing the spirits of historic landmarks as a stage. This unique, other-worldly show features a variety of talents including contemporary circus and flow arts, sideshow, dance, theatrics, and a bit of magic.
Since its inception, Ghostly Circus has captivated audiences with its talented performers, unique costume creations, and immersive design curation. As a nonprofit initiative under Ghostly Circus CultureTrust of Greater Philadelphia since 2021, the project continues to push boundaries and redefine theatrical experiences.
Don’t miss your chance to experience “Black Box Paradox” at FringeArts. This adaptable theater space is an intimate venue, so only a limited amount of tickets are available.
