Haiti 2006

Purpose

Clowns Without Borders-USA madeĀ a 10-day exploratory expedition to the southern part of Haiti. Working in partnership with Maison de Naissance and the White/Flowers Foundation we performed 15 shows from hospitals to rural rice fields in the Cayes/Torbeck region. Despite warnings from the US government, the negative media surrounding Haiti, the pre-election violence in Cite Soliel, Port au Prince, and surrounding areas, we were entirely safe and warmly welcomed by our Haitian friends. In fact, we could not imagine how any negative press about political violence could come from the region where we were staying.
