Tribe of Fools
Our second episode takes us to the Philadelphia Circus School to meet the Tribe of Fools, a group of physical theatre practitioners who are using circus, parkour, and acrobatics to address critical issues in their local community. We explore how movement helps to transcend language and express the complex emotions when words fall short.
