End of Summer 2015!

End of Summer 2015!

It’s been a great summer in France, learning about the street festivals and juggling festivals across the country. Also, traveling across Europe and performing in 8 different countries this year, I have learned about the European performance scene. I am writing about the various countries and the performance permits on The Busking Project if you would like to follow along! Also, I have been writing for the Flow Arts Institute about the history of the term Flow Arts, defining what Flow Arts means to me and writing about the differences in Juggling vs Flow Arts. Now that that the Performance season is slowing down, and I no longer have a working visa here, I will be retraining my clown technique with Ian Wallace and Sara Tiley in Italy, and continuing my research on the letters work on my own. I look forward to returning to Canada in March (as I am hoping for an extension of my holiday Visa here in France until my partner completes his studies) and showing the world the new things from Europe! As I have more time, you will surely see more posts from me soon. À Bientot!... read more


Forgiveness is one of those things in our society that we really gloss over. Something horrible happens to us, and if we’re are lucky we have deep friends who are there by our side, willing to listen to us – for as long as we need – as we find forgiveness for those who’ve done us wrong. (I am so grateful to have friends like this). But many aren’t that lucky. Some get a 3 month grace period from family and friends, after a major divorce, severe betrayal or a death, and after that they get the trite and cliche phrases of “let it go” “get over it” and “suck it up”.  This may shut people up, but it is unhelpful in the long run. It actually shuts down the process leading to forgiveness. Our society can seem allergic to emotions, trying to rid ourselves of them as soon as possible, but humans don’t work like that. Forgiveness is inefficient and time consuming. But, totally, totally worth it. Yet, even in the best of situations, surrounded by good friends and having time to process the losses, most of us don’t have very good examples of what forgiveness is. All the stories in all the world focus on overcoming the obstacles,  getting the girl, and perhaps getting revenge. Anger is powerful, and it’s easier to blame and slay your enemy. But Hollywood movies and popular stories don’t go into how forgiveness is given, or the long, slow process it can take to construct it. So, in my own path to forgiveness, I have created this flow chart in an attempt... read more

What People are Saying About Dawn

Since we met Dawn back in 2011, she has been a fundamental part of our planning and outreach. She is the best kind of advisor – someone who’s not afraid to tell you that you’re doing something terrible, when needed, but also who suggests positive solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had. We’ve spent three years getting better and better, and Dawn has played an important part in that. Nick Broad, founder

The Busking Project

Dawn Marie is an incredible instructor and coach. Her class was pack and she still managed to offer an amazing workshop with lots of personal attention. Her class was one of the highlights of the festival and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great coach. Carisa Hendrix, director of Prop Fest Alberta

Dawn is a professional, expert in her field of expertise who made the 2 hour workshop feel like a walk in the park. At the end, everyone felt that they accomplished what looked impossible at the beginning and felt the time just flew by. Joe Nifco
