Watch Out for Flying Kids! follows nine teenage troupers in two circuses. The members of Circus Harmony in St. Louis are inner-city and suburban kids. The Galilee Circus in Israel is composed of Jews and Arabs. When they get together, they confront racism in the Midwest and tribalism in the Middle East as they learn to overcome assumptions, animosity, and obstacles that are physical, personal and political. Cynthia Levinson is the acclaimed author of several books of nonfiction including, We’ve Got a Job: The 1963 Birmingham Children’s March.
Members of Circus Harmony will perform.
In partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council’s Michael and Barbara Newmark institute for Human Relations together with the Urban League of Metropolitan St Louis.
