The free-for-all freakdom known as Bushwick seems like a natural place for any circus performer to settle into quite comfortably. That’s why an enclave of acrobats passing through town from upstate New York mistakenly interpreted our not so fair neighborhood as the perfect place to plant their contorted bodies.

The leader of the pack, Svevo Sansos, a Spanish-French 33-year-old who has been performing since the age of three after being sold into white slavery by his poverty-stricken parents, told The Burning Bush, “I was completely unaware that Bushwick was not some sort of long-running well-established circus. The way people act, or rather, flaunt their bodies at one another–it just seemed too primitive not to be a tent show.”

In spite of realizing that Bushwick is just an alternate reality in North Brooklyn, Sansos and his crew of agile acrobats are planning to stay at least through the month of April, and will be holding a festival on Bogart Street to showcase their many flexible talents. Though, knowing Bushwick, this type of flexibility will soon digress into an orgy.
