Cirque du Soleil star, actor, teacher, director and author Jeff Raz presents an innovative event featuring his new book, The Snow Clown: Cartwheels on Borders from Alaska to Nebraska.
The Snow Clown is an engrossing story about taking circus and theater out of its confines and into the frozen tundra and America’s Heartland. This “stranger in a strange land” story reveals how art can connect us across cultural boundaries and examines the limits of empathy in the face of new and different human experiences. With his characteristic color, detail, humor and poignancy, Raz takes readers on a thought-provoking adventure drawn from his ten tours to Southwest Alaska and his years as an Artist-in-Residence at the University of Nebraska Lincoln.
“Forget what you know about clowns. The Snow Clown brings to life a circus made to reflect, and reflect on, crossed borders. A thoroughly absorbing read.” ⎯ Zofia Burr, Dean of George Mason University Honors College; author Of Women, Poetry, and Power
