International Clown Week: August 1-7th
Marie Martin’s wistful toy piano rendition of Peppina’s “Beastly Beauty” has been accepted into the Internet Archive! The song was original part of the Hitrecord project, and our involvement there allowed us to use it as part of a contact juggling clown performance. It’s now a permanent part of our repertoire, and a slightly more permanent part of history thanks to archive.org accepting the upload.

The organization hosts a sanctuary for retired and rescued circus elephants, and allows groups to meet them up close. If you haven’t had the chance to get to know an elephant, we can’t recommend it enough!
