One In Five for Sunday 23 February 2014
One in Five is off to the circus this week. Circus Kumarani is a community circus based in Dargaville. It was set up ten years ago to use circus and social arts to help enhance the lives of people with disabilities. Some of Circus Kumarani’s star performers have been with it since its inception and are now adept at juggling, walking on tightropes, spinning hoops, whizzing around in the German wheel and swinging on a trapeze. One in Five’s Carol Stiles heads along to a circus skills session and discovers it’s definitely not as easy as it looks!
