Project Indonesia 2010
Anna Zastrow joins Dan Roberts and D’dy Soker (Indonesia based Hidung Merah artists) in Sumatra.
I have now been in Indonesia almost two weeks and it is time to report in! I am here joining Dan Roberts and his Hidung Merah (Red Nose) Circus and together we will bring clown joy to children living in disadvantaged or distressed conditions.
We are visiting poor villages around Jakarta, as well as the earthquake victims of Padang, and will possibly venture to Aceh, still recovering from the 2004 tsunami and civil unrest, or Sulawesi, where communities are caught up in religious conflict.
Dan returned to Indonesia in January 2009 in collaboration with Clowns Without Borders and his own new venture, Hidung Mera (Red Nose Circus). From Dan: I’ve been in Jakarta for over two weeks now and things have been quickly beginning to roll. Aside from being out of commission for several days due to illness, I’ve been busily meeting with different groups and creating a schedule for the next few months.
Dan’s first project in Indonesia.
CWB is rejuvenating our collaboration with our partners in Indonesia! Follow along as the adventure begins in late April, 2012.
