'MIME WITHOUT BORDERS'

Being unspoken, mime and silent performing easily transcend language barriers making it ideal entertainment for audiences worldwide. Doors to friendship are opened easily through the universal appeal of Chris's art which has been seen in the African countries of Benin, Cameroon and Morocco, as well as Bangladesh, Canada, China, Curaçao, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Japan, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. And all over the USA.

A week at a Haitian ORPHANAGE and a visit to the INAUGURATION of some new TOILETS.
orphans & me


On behalf of the Vermont group, Haiti Orphanage Sponsorship Trust, I visited the Foyer Evangelique Universel Orphanage near Port-au Prince, Haiti to look at the most effective way to continue helping. There are 39 children who have lost their parents to earthquake and disease, or have families too poor to care for them. Despite the efforts of the family that cares for them no one quite gets proper nutrition and all are at risk from skin disorders, and diseases like malaria and cholera. The area is also prone to hurricane flooding. The children had seen my show in November 2012 and were keen to see tricks and silliness again, providing a welcome distraction from the hardships of their lives.

As part of our research into toilets safe from flooding, the director of the Orphanage and I made the 6-hour each way bus trip to Southwest Haiti to attend the inauguration of some composting toilets built by the organization YoutHaiti.
