Jarred Dewey - Artist Statement

YUMMY Deluxe is a full-force celebration of all things queer and femme. It features circus, live music, dance and drag all combined into one deliciously avant-garde cabaret.


Covid 19 and the necessary restrictions meant my work evaporated before my very eyes. I’ve dedicated the last 21 years of my life to training, performing and creating and to have that suddenly be impossible has been challenging. The pandemic has forced me to explore new career pathways and consider retraining.


As the industry re-opens, one of the biggest things I look forward to is reconnecting with my industry peers. Circus performers have a special sense of community built on trust and respect physically and emotionally speaking. I miss seeing them, training with them and also sharing the stage with them.
