Paying homage to Burning Man’s 2019 “Metamorphoses” theme, we present a night of Kafkian creativity with 3 rings of creepy, crawly critters all dancing in their circus gear…. FreaKKshow is Kostume Kult’s annual dark circus event featuring carnival barkers, twisted sideshows and many glorious freaKKs. For this year’s theme, think ‘bug circus’ or any loose interpretation of a Kafkaesque Metamorphosis… Our last BM fundraiser before the burn, all forms of circusy playa style are acceptable!


Costumes are REQUIRED for Entry! Creative critters, mystical creatures, shape shifters, dark sparkle. See more inspiration here:
