Fern Street Circus
November 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Guest speaker: John Highkin-Executive Director
Fern Street Circus is San Diego’s single-ring social circus, a professional circus and musical troupe which performs and teaches circus in underserved neighborhoods. In its just completed annual Neighborhood Tour, the Circus mixes adult professional artists with students they teach free-of-charge in City Heights.
Fern Street Circus serves families and transforms neighborhoods through performance and teaching of circus arts. Professional artists collaborate with learners and their families in neighborhood settings. Circus transcends barriers between people of varying cultures and languages, combines physical and theatrical skills, and merges the magnificent and the everyday.
Participants co-create every aspect of the Circus, using their own talents and available resources, working in public locations, creating visible community.
Join us to learn more about this program that is part of a global movement in creating social change. We will also get to witness student wire walkers, an acrobat/tumbling student and a foot juggler showcase their talents!
