Past engagements include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out Series, Gibney Dance, Queens College/Kupferberg Center for the Arts (through CUNY Dance Initiative), The Yard on Martha's Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, among others.

Domenica 20 maggio 2018 si rinnova nelle piazze delle principali città italiane l’appuntamento con la Giornata del Naso Rosso, organizzata dai volontari clown di corsia di VIP Italia Onlus.
L'evento, giunto alla sua 14esima edizione, è l'unico durante il quale vengono raccolti i fondi necessari per sovvenzionare i progetti della Federazione VIP ViviamoInPositivo Italia Onlus.

Ecco il programma dell'evento:

Bolle di sapone, colori, giochi, balli…i volontari di VIP Italia animeranno per l'intera giornata le piazze delle città dove sono presenti ed operano le Associazioni federate, dando vita a spettacoli e momenti di gioia per un pubblico di tutte le età.

La Giornata del Naso Rosso sarà, altresì, l'occasione per entrare nel mondo VIP, per conoscerne i valori e i progetti, per imparare a riconoscere i clown di VIP Italia – gli unici autorizzati a questa raccolta fondi – dotati del camice identificativo (caratterizzato dalla scritta Viviamo in Positivo sulla schiena, dal colletto rosso, dalle maniche rigate), del tesserino e naturalmente dell'inseparabile naso rosso.

Con le risorse raccolte durante la Giornata del Naso Rosso è possibile sostenere i corsi di formazione per i volontari clown delle 59 Associazioni federate, le missioni organizzate nei paesi in via di sviluppo, i progetti da realizzare nelle scuole ed aiutarci a diffondere, tra l'opinione pubblica, la conoscenza della clown terapia e della filosofia del “Viviamo In Positivo”, alla base dei valori di VIP Italia Onlus.

Tutte queste attività vanno a sostenere la missione base di ogni volontario di VIP Italia, ossia il servizio tra le corsie degli ospedali, delle RSA, nelle carceri e nei luoghi di sofferenza, per portare il sorriso e la leggerezza in luoghi dove spesso vengono a mancare.

Un po' di numeri: la Federazione VIP Italia Onlus nasce nel 2003; attualmente, in Italia e nella Repubblica di San Marino, le associazioni federate sono 59, per un totale di 4.400 volontari. Nel 2016, sono state prestate circa 150.000ore di volontariato clown nelle 200 strutture convenzionate, tra ospedali e case di riposo.

Devikulam: The sensational cliffs exuding emerald hues and its lakesides echoing lore of gods and goddesses, Devikulam is a tiny hamlet situated at an altitude of 1800 m in the state of Kerala. The lush landscapes, verdant tea plantations filling the air with sweet aroma and the cascading sounds of its waterfalls filling the valley with rhythmic sounds, Devikulam is most rightly named Pond of Goddess. A visit to the hill station laces Kerala tours with memories worth cherishing for life.
