Review for CLOWNS WITHOUT BORDERS Inc, , CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Clowns Without Borders does absolutely amazing work! In all honesty! And I should know, I am the one who founded the organization in the US in 1995, bringing it from Spain, where it started in 93. Why 5 Stars? Because of plentiful avalanches of laughter in places where it is most needed. Audiences of 150 or 500 or 2000 or more, children and families, torn away from their homes by crisis, in refugee camps, IDP camps, temporary shelters, child-friendly spaces, schools, and so many other spaces that spontaneously become theaters. Professional artists volunteering, creating, performing shows connecting to the local funny bone through clown, circus and physical comedy. Workshops. Working with local artists and teachers. Teaching them to teach. Behind the scenes, a hard working board, part-time and volunteer staff, all extremely dedicated, collaborating to operate 6-12 projects a year on a very down-to-earth budget.
