We are hoping to continue our Peace Through Pyramids partnership with the Galilee Circus, in Israel, in July 2018. If you are interested in helping to fund this endeavor please contact us at circusday@circusharmony.org 

THE GALILEE CIRCUS WAS IN ST. LOUIS AUGUST 1-15, 2016. Look below for where people were able to witness this beautiful, awe-inspiring show!

Peace Through Pyramids is a collaboration between Circus Harmony’s diverse youth circus troupe, the St. Louis Arches and the Galilee Circus, a Jewish/Arab youth circus from Israel! Combined they are the Galilee Arches! Since 2007, these ordinary young people have done extraordinary work showing the world what is possible when you focus on what you can do together instead of on what sets you apart. At each meeting, they have produced incredible performances while forging friendships that have stayed strong across oceans and years. In 2014, we were supposed to be in Israel from July 9-23 but due to the conflict with Gaza and an FAA Flight ban, we were there until July 29!  This year, they are in St. Louis thanks to the support of the Trio Foundation of St. Louis, The Kranzberg Family Foundation, The Staenberg Family Foundation and people like YOU! During this time, more than ever, people needed to witness Peace Through Pyramids, Harmony Through Handsprings and Joy Through Juggling! They needed to see what can happen when people focus on what connects them instead of what separates them.

In the words of Rabbi Marc Rosenstein after our first shows in Israel in 2007:  “I think many who saw the shows felt the same tears in their eyes maybe out of the feeling one is seeing a vision of something that we all long for… the total obliteration of barriers, whether social, economic or gravitational.”
