Can the perfect utopia exist?
UTOPIAN (t's&c’s apply) is a surrealistic circus pop-culture experience. Joined by their accomplice, Symoné takes you on an expedition asking you, "why do people abuse power roles?" With a big pink pole, 6 inch skates, and gender nonconformity.
Join the world of psychedelic pilgrimage. You’ll be safe with us.

“If you love a buzzing club atmosphere, amazing visuals and exceptional circus skills - this is for you. Symoné is totally bewitching and manages to be both in your face, loud, exciting, but also striking and emotive. It will likely leave you provoked, but utterly entertained.”

"Symoné subverts the traditional malegaze and invites the audience into her personal space. Symoné's work, a strength of resolution, a rebellion against expectations of what the body and soul can do."
