Gregory collaborated with Director Jennifer Miller from 2014-2017, as a performer and designer for Circus Amok's NYC parks tours. Designs included puppets, masks, sets, and banner paintings. Enormous humpback whales emerged from box vans and swam down city sidewalks, while great feats of climate change balancing acts enticed audiences to the center ring.
Circus Amok! performs free, one ring-circus spectaculars in NYC parks across the boroughs. In 2014, Cumulous Frenzy was presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of the Next Wave Festival.
In 2016 Gregory was awarded an Artist Grand from the New York State Council on the Arts for his work with Circus Amok.
"Designing for Circus Amok has been the opportunity to directly address the public with large, demanding, curious, queer, and spectacular art. My work for Amok includes large-scale backdrop paintings and the puppets and masks that dance, tumble, and stilt in front of them. The outdoor performance sites mean the design must attract attention with loud, colorful graphics that demand curiosity and reward investigation."
