Beyond the Circus from Vashkor Ahmed Zia on Vimeo.

Cirkus Tværs, led by Trille Lucassen, is a “social circus” in Denmark that uses circus as a tool to help children and young people to have a better understanding about life. It is located in Gellerup, in the city of Århus, where there is a lot of different ethnicity and cultures. Most of the children at Cirkus Tværs are second generation immigrants with parents who are refugees. The circus aims to teach these children to take this social responsibility that they are all part of a group where everybody can be equal.
