Twenty Danish circus performers and coaches arrived in the Greater Cincinnati area early on the morning of the thirteenth of October for a circus exchange with Circus Mojo in Ludlow, Kentucky. The Danish troupe leader and founder of of Cirkus Charlie and director of Salling Cirkus Kids, Einar Trie has been a clown for 45 years. In 1985 Trie performed in the opening ceremony for the Olympics in Moscow and in 1986 he walked from the top of the Grand Canyon to the bottom and back up on 3 foot (one meter) stilts.
Trie and Circus Mojo’s founder first met Paul Miller in Berlin at the Network of International Circus Educators conference in 2011 and again in 2013 in Finland at the First Ever Effective Circus Conference where Miller was delivering the closing keynote address. While together in Finland they began a partnership that has led to Mojo sending performers to Denmark and Trie presenting at the 2nd International College Circus Festival in Ludlow in May 2014.
