Beautiful Trouble: Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army

"The clowns are organizing. They are organizing. Over and out." -- Overheard on UK police radio during action by Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (July 2004)

"Clowns always speak of the same thing, they speak of hunger; hunger for food, hunger for sex, but also hunger for dignity, hunger for identity, hunger for power. In fact, they introduce questions about who commands, who protests." — Dario Fo (Italian playwright/fool) [source Rebel Clowning

CIRCA aims to make clowning dangerous again, to bring it back to the street, restore its disobedience and give it back the social function it once had: its ability to disrupt, critique and heal society. Since the beginning of time tricksters (the mythological origin or all clowns) have embraced life's paradoxes, creating coherence through confusion - adding disorder to the world in order to expose its lies and speak the truth.
