In a society increasingly full of adversity, It is not always easy to maintain joy. In order to discuss what we can learn from the circus arts, with its poetics and playfulness, this panel brings together researcher and circus artist Ermínia Silva, director and clown Bete Dorgam and psychoanalyst Christian Dunker.

“The question of laughter is extremely important for life, and artists, in general, have a different sensibility in bringing this to people,” says Ermínia. “To bring joy, to bring magic is to guarantee that life is worth living.”
Clown and director Lu Lopes, the Rubra Clown, mediates the panel. Lúcia Nascimento, from GEAC (Cultural Action Management of Sesc São Paulo), makes the introduction.
