Friday December 10, and
Saturday, December 11. 4 pm to 6 pm.
To get everybody ready for the holiday spirit, we celebrated our store grand opening with Wise Fool New Mexico, the amazing local Circus Company that started in Penasco, New Mexico way back. It was great to have them perform at the Molecule space. The gals brought their ropes and stilts and played around, hanging from the railing, climbing the walls, and other actions they discovered.
It is Wise Fool New Mexico’s mission to ignite imagination, build community, and promote social justice through performances and hands-on experiences in the arts of circus, puppetry, and theatre.
“Wise Fool’s beautiful and talented mostly female group of performers… guarantees that your eyes will pop, your mouth will gape, and most of all, you yourself will feel a sense of unlimited potential.” – Local Flavor Magazine
Wise Fool is a beloved and award-winning non-profit organization at the center of Santa Fe’s community arts scene. Wise Fool serves 2,000 youth and adults with hands-on activities and 14,000 audience members annually with high-quality experiences built upon our core values of community, arts accessibility, and social justice.
As a pioneer in the emerging North American social circus movement and the only contemporary circus arts company in New Mexico, Wise Fool is further evolving circus as an art form by developing quality productions, professional artists, and expert teachers for circus-based arts curriculums. Encouraging audiences to jump the bounds of possibility and recognize that we are all capable of the extraordinary, we offer first-hand explorations and skill-building experiences in which participants discover and develop their own connection to the arts.
