Wise Fool's Social Circus

Jan 8, 2016

Now in its 15th year, Northern New Mexico's non-profit circus troupe Wise Fool is part of a growing movement across the country.  The concept of "social circus," says Wise Fool Co-Founder and Artistic Director Amy Christian, uses the circus arts as a way to "offer experiences of empowerment and engagement" to underserved communities, through both public performances and classes for kids and adults.

In a longer version of the conversation, Amy Christian talks about Wise Fool's recent move into a new and expanded studio space on Siler Road in Santa Fe, and about the classes and performances that will be taking place there in the coming months.
