The Ponderings of a Fool
Director's Notes by Ben Christensen

Circus Dreams - The Ponderings of a Fool is full of juggling, trapeze, aerial silks, comedy clown sketches and a lot of audience participation. As a theater show I wanted to fight against the traditional confines of the space. Because of my clowning background I wanted to interact with my audience and the show reflects this desire. At times we invite an audience member or two onto the stage but more often than not we, the performers, bring the show into the audience with short chase gags, funny bits, even a six foot beach ball. The trick is how to do such a thing while maintaining a focal point for everyone's entertainment, not just the two rows in front of you. This show accomplishes that beautifully.

The show is a lot of fun and games however there is also a heart touching message as a part of the show that will have people leaving with something to think about. The plot of the show itself follows a clown through his life. Childhood, friendship, work, greed, bondage, eternity are all themes you will see played out with the use of circus skills. The Ponderings of a Fool really is an appropriate name because we want the clown to not only entertain but to cause people to think.
