Echo Theater Presents: Send in the Clowns (2013) A Benefit for Clowns Without Borders

Friday, March 8, 2024

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Organization: Clowns Without Borders

Venue: Echo Theater PDX

Join us for a special screening of Sam Lee's 2013 documentary on the power of laughter and joy in the face of adversity.

Clowns Without Borders USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that exists for a simple reason: to bring the transformative power of joy to areas of conflict, displacement, and emergency. We envision a world where kids get to experience contagious laughter and unbridled joy in the very moments they need it most.

Send in the Clowns follows performers from the organization Clowns Without Borders. Their mission is to travel to areas of crisis and relieve stress and suffering through laughter. The clowns are volunteers, armed with a unique set of skills and an earnest desire to change the world. But is their work any different from all of the other agenda-driven aid organizations?

The evening will include a Q+A session with Josie Mae (CWB Performer Ecuador, Turkey, El Salvador) and others.

This event is a pre-party for the 25th Anuual Portland Clowns Without Borders Benefit Show; March 30, 2024 at the Alberta Rose Theater. We hope to see you there, too!

Suggested donation $10; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

All Proceeds benefit Clowns Without Borders Portland.
