We are undergoing a transformation for the 2016 tour – all teaching, no fire! We’re going to work intensively with selected students in Burmese migrant schools and other refugee facilities in Mae Sot, Thailand, to teach them skills and ideas to create their own circus show. Do you want to be part of the team?
