Announcement: We're going to South America!
Circus of Smiles will be touring again in fall of 2012.
There is a deep satisfaction that comes from transcending the barriers of language; it's magic when you find you can communicate through smiles and mime only. Even so, there is a kind of comfort and inspiration that comes from really getting to know and understand a person you can really delve into a deep conversation with. Needless to say, we are excited to teach and perform for children with whom we share a common language. That's right, this time around, we will actually be able to speak the local language.
Though there are still many details to hash out and many, many, many plans to be made, I am thrilled to be going back to the part of the world that feels most like "home." Argentina will be our home base, and the plan is to perform in at least two other nearby countries as well.
Argentina is a place that means a lot to me on an intensely personal level, and also happens to be where I first found (and was inspired to join) the circus! It seems right on many levels that it should be our kickoff tour as a legit non-profit.
