Jefferson Circus Songs

(Suzan Pitt, 1973, 16 min)

Created in the summer of 1973 in the basketball court of Jefferson High School in Minneapolis Jefferson Circus Songs uses both cut-out animation and pixilation to create a “circus” of surreal happenings.  The actors are Minneapolis school children dressed in fantasy costumes- each child imagined the roll they wanted to play (princess, monkey, etc).
