WE ARE AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM OF CIRCUS PERFORMERS AND DANCERS, COMING TOGETHER TO BRING JOY TO REFUGEE AND MIGRANT CHILDREN ON THE THAI/ BURMESE BORDER.
Spark Circus grew from an idea hatched in the early 2000’s at beach resorts on the southern islands of Thailand, where many of the staff are Burmese refugees. Awareness of the plight of these refugees and their families began to emerge, and one of the beach residents, Glenna Crawley, was inspired to take action and create the “Laughing for Life” circus project.
In 2007, this casual group morphed into Spark! Circus with Andrea Russell as its ringmaster. Spark Circus now visits the refugee camps and migrant schools every year, working together with the local communities to build moments of magic, wonder and joy.
