My Grandfathers Circus

"My grandfather grew up in South Dakota during the great depression. This fifty-five minute show is based on his stories and how he had fun during a very adverse time creating a circus out of the dust bowl. Every day farm objects come to life and find excitement in unexpected places. This show was written for children in the Gulf Region post hurricane Katrina and has been performed at the White House, the National Storytelling Convention, and for the Mass MoCA museum. Circus arts performed in this show include and are not limited to juggling, slack rope walking, prop manipulation, unicycle, and many more."
