The Green Circus will PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE of alternative energy. We will travel around the country on a tour bus – The Green Machine- running on biodiesel as well as grease from restaurants. The Green Machine will travel all over the United States to various biodiesel co-ops, biodiesel plants, music festivals, eco-festivals, alternative energy conferences, and state fairs. The bus will serve as a mobile advertising billboard displaying the ecological and economic impact of our fuel as well as displaying sponsors’ logos. There will be cross promotion of the Green Circus and sponsors/funders through our website www.greencircus.org which is also displayed on the bus.
THE CLEANEST SHOW ON EARTH!
This free show is performed in a magical, multi-sensory circus tent which offers the audience a glimpse into a world that is ecologically sustainable. Through multimedia, audience interaction, acrobatics, trapeze, and live music, the circus, which is for audiences of all ages, will illustrate easy, simple solutions to creating cleaner air, water, and land. After the performance, there will be an engaging and fun demonstration that explains how our biodiesel engine works and how you can convert your engine from using fossil fuel to biodiesel. This show and class will be performed at various times of the day/evening. The audiences at the festivals will be made aware of the times by small parades of The Green Circus characters announcing who we are and when the show times are.
GREEN CIRCUS WORKSHOPS
The Green Circus also provides yoga, dance, clowning, and theatre workshops for children and adults throughout the day/weekend of the festival/fair/conference. We will also have a booth providing information on other related organizations to contact. An educational comic book/information packet will be distributed.
During the tour there will also be a filming of a documentary interviewing farmers, children and people of all ages about their concerns/opinions relating to alternative energy. It will provide educational information about how the bus is running on biodiesel and documenting visits to the various biodiesel plants/co-ops across the country. This video also will be a “making of” of the entire process and marketed and distributed nationwide to universities, film festivals and other venues.
