The Kids’ show:
A hilarious and engaging 30- 45 min children’s show with 2-4 performers that incorporates circus arts, prop manipulation, juggling and comedy. By demonstrating feats of skill and hilarious comedy, interspersed with spoken word, we illustrate that kids and teens can overcome challenges by pursuing their passions and surrounding themselves with positive people.
Incorporating age-appropriate excerpts from Quinn’s TEDTalk about overcoming addiction and gaining independence by pursuing the Circus Arts, and on Vesta’s experience with social Circus in the Burmese refugee camps and orphanages, this performance is adaptable for elementary or high schools; children of all ages resonate with our message of perseverance, perspective, and positivity.
Karina Strong (troupe co-ordinator) has a social work degree with specializations in child welfare, play therapy and substance misuse. Check out Quinn’s TedTalk here, where he talks about overcoming challenges as a teenager by finding his passion and following his dreams. Karina, Quinn, and Kat have all done two months tours Asia 2012-2014 with SPARKCircus, bringing joy to thousands of Burmese refugee children and orphans.

“The Vesta Circus performers came to our school in early June 2014. They started off our morning with a bang! Both staff and students were amazed at the quality of this performance and there were many whispers of “How did they do that?” We enjoyed the humor and skill of all the performers (although I must admit I hid my eyes a few times when he was juggling with knives!). They were able to engage all students from Kindergarten to grade 7. The stunning LED and fibre optic effects had the students in awe and they continue to practice their own hula hoop skills at recess times. This was a thoroughly enjoyable performance!”
