After beirut we went to Turkey ( gaziantep ) were we played in a school for Serian refugees.
We danced, played music and did crazy clown things ;) the kids were great!
After that we went to one of the most beautiful places i ever saw, Cappadocia! There was a centre in the mountains, called ‘ little prince accademy’ for children with special needs.

Many shows in Libanon – check out our video!

I met this beautiful girl in a refugee camp in Libanon. She was so sweet and very shy, and arrived to the circus show in her beautiful dress…! Many families we met live already for 5 years in tents near the Serian border…The children were up to some circus fun!!!

Emergency-Circus Page:
The days have been packed clowning in the heat for sweet Syrian refugee schools in Lebanon. We teamed up with Clown Me In, a local troupe, to bring big love and laughter really close to the border of Syria. These children lead a harsh life in the dusty heat but were all so full of love for the clowns who came today.
