We Are Circus Action
Meet the Clowns
As a child - she dreamed of becoming a peacock. She learned, taught, and created beautiful things. Today she is a flamingo.
A builder and a thinker. A man of vision and creation. Can walk on a tightrope with a burning hoop - but doesn't make a big deal of it.
In the Media:
Here's Our Story:
Three years ago Roi decided to quit the rat race: He was working at a job that wasn't satisfying him just to pay the rent for an apartment that was close to his workplace. One can say he found himself by negation: No more of this, he felt. What he did want to do was to work with people and teach things, and the field he chose was juggling just because it was an old hobby. Another childhood fantasy answered the housing problem: He will build a house on wheels.
A few days later he met Michal, who at the same time also left a nice apartment in the city to live in a mud hut in a remote organic farm.
Roi told her about his plan and she said: "Hay, I just happen to have a juggling workshop, we can do it together". Michal's workshop was actually an activist group that brought circus workshops to protest and community events for three years since 2011. Together with a few friends they used to load Michal's pick-up truck with juggling equipment and combine their activity with events that promote human rights, democracy and social justice. this combination allowed wider participation in these events, and proved an efficient media magnet.
For nine months the couple built their truck, which they named "Joy". Joy has been their home for the past two years, while Circus Action turned from a non-profit activist group to a prosperous social business, in which the paid events enable the continuation of the volunteer work.
Our plan for the future is to find sponsorship that will allow us to travel Israel and the world as a part of a nomadic community of teachers and artists, to spend short periods of time in different places and give our workshops free from charge before we go on to the next place.
