Being part of a team


At the request of Faby's niece, Peggy, we put together a circus for her preschoolers. Another of Faby's nieces, Pati, performs regularly as a clown for children, but this was the first time her whole family participated. I, also, did a couple of clown improvisations at a few Quichua communities during Christmas, but this time I really enjoyed being part of a team. Because of the difficult logistics in getting us together, we planned the whole program the night before, putting together our ideas, and running through a sketchy rehearsal. What I really enjoyed was that everyone added something, and everyone used their special abilities. Pati held the show together, but everyone added their semi-improvised part and enthusiasm. We actually pulled together a circus performance for the kids! Wow! Now that's teamwork!
