Circus Without Borders

Bigtop Without Borders

Circus Without Borders is the inspiring story of two unusual circuses from farflung corners of the world — Artcirq in Arctic Canada, and Kalabante in Guinea, West Africa. An unlikely union grows out of a deep friendship between founders Guillaume Saladin and Yamoussa Bangoura, and their common dream: to bring hope to youth in remote communities. In sharing their passion and teaching young people the art and skills of the circus, they work to combat the despair of a generation struggling with the painful legacy of colonialism. Now, through a unique mix of tradition and acrobatics, these talented young artists have stepped onto the world stage to share what they've learned that despair can give way to joy, and that passion and dedication can make dreams come true.
