Japan & China 2017

Posted on January 6th, 2018 by Viveca

In the fall of 2017, I attended the Japan Juggling Festival, traveled for just a few days in Japan, and then attended the China Wuqiao International Circus Festival.

Viveca juggling five balls at Congress of Jugglers 2010

In January, we piloted a program I had developed to introduce elementary school children to classical circus. I had written the business plan, developed the curriculum, coordinated with the school, etc., but when it came time to go into the school and deal with real children, I expected to hand over program operations to the […]
