Peace Through Pyramids is a collaboration between Circus Harmony’s diverse youth circus troupe, the St. Louis Arches, and the Galilee Circus, a Jewish/Arab youth circus from Israel! 

Since 2007, these ordinary young people have done extraordinary work showing the world what is possible when you focus on what you can do together instead of on what sets you apart. At each meeting, they have produced incredible performances while forging friendships that have stayed strong across oceans and years. In 2014, we were supposed to be in Israel from July 9-23 but due to the conflict with Gaza and an FAA Flight ban, we were there until July 29!  During this time, more than ever, people needed to witness Peace Through Pyramids, Harmony Through Handsprings and Joy Through Juggling! They needed to see what can happen when people focus on what connects them instead of what separates them. 

In today’s troubled times, racial divides in the United States continue to grow and inequality between socioeconomic classes runs rampant. In Israel, peaceful co-existence between Jews and Arabs seems more precarious than ever. Peace Through Pyramids is Circus Harmony’s unusual and successful approach to addressing racial/cultural fear and distrust. Circus is about working together, strength, trust, fearlessness, overcoming, and joy, especially joy. It crosses boundaries of race, religion, age, gender and income.

We are excited to invite our Israeli friends for another amazing visit to St. Louis. The Galilee Arches will train and perform across the city during the visit. Some highlights include public performances at theFerguson Recreation Center, Ballpark Village, and City Museum. 

This Peace Through Pyramids partnership made possible in part thanks to support from Staenberg Family Foundation, Kranzberg Family Foundation, and  Trio Foundation of St. Louis!
