Circus Without Borders Trailer from Northern Light Productions on Vimeo.
Join the Pulitzer Center for a free screening of the documentary Circus Without Borders at CircEsteem in Chicago, on Friday December 4.
Friday, December 4
4730 N. Sheridan Road
A special performance and Q&A will follow the screening with producer Linda Matchan and performers Guillaume Saladin from Artcirq, and Yamoussa Bangoura from Kalabante.
Circus Without Borders follows Saladin and Bangoura, best friends and world-class acrobats from remote corners of the globe who share the same dream: To bring hope and change to their struggling communities through circus. Their dream unfolds in the Canadian Arctic and Guinea, West Africa, where they help Inuit and Guinean youth achieve unimaginable success while confronting suicide, poverty and despair."
Both troupes use art and the power of dreams to transform themselves and their communities. Seven years in the making, this tale of two circuses - Artcirq and Kalabante - is a culture-crossing performance piece that offers a portal into two remote communities, and an inspiring story of resilience and joy.
