The Muse Brooklyn and Clowns Without Borders come together for a night of fun, laughter, and celebration! At the Clowns Without Borders First Annual Benefit Showcase, witness the spectacular artistry and strength of The Muse acrobats, jugglers, and aerialists. Experience the silly, heartwarming charm of the CWB clowns. The show will also feature a hilarious solo performance by Hilary Chaplain, and a TEDtalk by Molly Levine about the importance of laughter in CWB relief work. The show is kid-friendly, but not exclusively kid-focused. Doors open at 7:30 pm.
In places where resources are scarce, laughter can be abundant. Clowns Without Borders (CWB) brings small teams of professional artists to perform in refugee camps, conflict zones, and sites of a natural disaster.In 1993, a letter from Croatian refugees to Spanish clown Tortell Pontrona sparked engagement. “You know what we miss most? We miss laughter.” From there, CWB was born. Since then, it has grown to an international NGO, with chapters in 14 countries, reaching over 400,000 displaced children a year.
Our work takes us to the beaches of Lesvos, Greece, the hills of rural El Salvador, the deserts of South Sudan. Though the audience changes, the result is the same. An invitation to play is sometimes all that is needed to help recapture a sense of childhood. We are reminded time and time again, that we all laugh in the same language.
Like laughter, our impact ripples outward, energizing children and the adults who care for them. In a world often divided and stark, Clowns Without Borders proudly co-creates and collaborates cross-culturally.
Come learn about how laughter creates community and builds resilience.
Ten years ago the internet was a new ‘vision’ of the future. Viral videos had just started to appear online. This one was one of the first to ‘catch on fire’.
Wonderful, playful and intelligent play!
As the video description says:
“What happens when you combine 200 liters of Diet Coke and over 500 Mentos mints? It’s amazing and completely insane. The first part of this video demonstrates a simple geyser, and the second part shows just how extreme it can get. Over one hundred jets of soda fly into the air in less than three minutes. It’s a hysterical and spectacular mint-powered version of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, brought to you by the mad scientists at EepyBird.com“
