We are delighted to announce the Circus Play Project which will bring new skills and fun to children and young adults living around Mae Sot, Thailand. We will work with both Myanmar and Thai communities to build friendship and unity across ethnic, religious and class boundaries. Playing together helps us live together and our motto is “Everyone Needs to have Fun”.
The Circus Play Project continues the work of Social Circus Myanmar which delivered social circus workshops in Yangon every dry season (November-February) from 2014-2020 to thousands of young people. The project builds on the foundations laid by Spark Circus which toured shows and workshops in Mae Sot and Thailand from 2007 – 2019.
Our workshops use circus skills and play as tools to promote healthy activities, co-operation, self-esteem and provide a much needed opportunity for fun and laughter. Accessibility, inclusion and gender-equality are key elements in our project delivery.
