janoah…anygoodjokes? juggles several tasks simultaneously … performing & teaching! During this (optionally interactive) experience YOU learn to juggle while you watch. In moments between acts, Janoah engagingly guides the audience through the essentials: throwing, catching and (of course) messy-ing up!

Part performance, part workshop, entirely entertaining, Janoah immerses audiences in a whimsical exploration of metaphor. Precarious unicycling, shimmering puppetry, jaw-dropping juggling, mesmerizing motions, meticulously prepared hot beverages … Janoah tosses together art forms to tell a tale of learning & labor, emerging ecstatically from a haphazard pile of props.

And (of course!) what circus would be complete without popcorn & banana peels?
