Haiti May/June 2011

CWB has completed a most wonderful collaboration with Terre Des Hommes this spring!
We offered a 5 week training in Les Cayes and Grand Goave, bringing in 7 artists! We collaborated with Terre des Hommes for the second time, building on a project started in September 2010. Our volunteer artists taught (and played with) the same group of community leaders and children to continue the training in circus skills, physical comedy and the psycho-social relief.

Japan 2011

Situation: In response to the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March of 2011, CWB-USA founder Moshe Cohen traveled there to join Guy Totaro in performing and teaching in shelters, schools, and evacuation centers as well as teaching performance workshops for local professionals in a project with the Tyler Foundation called Niko Niko Taichi (Shine On! Smile Ambassador). Six months after the earthquake, the effects of the disaster were still pronounced: mountains of debris, fields full of destroyed cars, demolished houses, innumerable structures in various stages of deconstruction/reconstruction, and temporary housing everywhere. There was a great amount of discussion and evidence of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in all segments of the population.
