Sweet Can Productions was started in 2006 by Beth Clarke, Kerri Kresinski and Daniela Steiner, and now consists of an ensemble of eight–Eric Oberthaler, musician, Natasha Kaluza, Matt White, Beth Clarke, and Kerri Kresinski, performers, Wendy Parkman and Joanna Haigood, directors, and Tad Shannon, lighting designer. Its mission is to create intimate, heartfelt performances in which the audience and performer easily connect with one another. Sweet Can presents the circus performer as a human being, accessible to everyone, and uses the performer’s circus skills to make connections by demonstrating the shared emotional experiences that unite us all.
