Infused with sexy sideshow feats and burlesque intrigue, Circo Draconum is a monthly performance at Mehanata Bulgarian Bar in downtown New York City. Founded by performer-couple Nikki Talis and Alexander Spitfire, Circo showcases such acts as fire eating, jumping on broken glass, a bed-of-nails routine and a flaming sledgehammer punishing unsuspecting cinderblocks. Alexander and Nikki invite different guest performers each month. This time they featured Lady Alchemy, a well-known figure in the New York burlesque scene. Proceeds from Circo are given to an animal rescue charity, but the donation jar is far from ordinary. Alexander and Nikki insist on having their audience attach money to them with an industrial strength staple gun. Ker-chunk!
