Lukso! Cirque De La Vie

The Healing Circus Comes to Town - Cameleon and Sex Abuse. The topic of child sexual abuse is taboo. People do not want to talk about it, oftentimes because our society values the unity of family and sexual abuse is committed by a family member, a person trusted by the child: It is shrouded in secrecy, too horrible to confront.

Cameleon Association Inc. is an association dedicated to helping young girls who have experienced sexual abuse regain possession of their bodies and soul.  But what does Cameleon have to do with the circus?

Cameleon has discovered the circus as a unique medium for helping these girl survivors of sexual abuse overcome their nightmares, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Cameleon believes that the “circus therapy” can help the girls come out of their shell, feel well, have fun and build a positive image of themselves.

And Cameleon found a partner in its crusade. Since five years ago, circus professionals and students from France’s national circus school, the Ecole Nationale des Arts du Cirque have been coming to the Philippines as volunteers. Giving their time and talent without compensation they teach circus and introduce achievement and bring back the smiles to these girls’ faces.

And now, for the first time, Cameleon and the French circus volunteers from the Ecole Nationale des Arts du Cirque will perform and the public will have the opportunity to see the pure French circus in its unadulterated form. The circus dubbed: Lukso! Cirque de la Vie: healing girl survivors of sexual abuse. will be held on May 14, 2015 at the Resorts World Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater. The show will feature French actress Sabrina Ouazani, who received the César award, the national film award of France, for Best Young Actress in 2005, and who also does aerial silk in the circus.
Cameleon Association, Inc. is a Non-Government Organization dedicated to rehabilitating very young girls who have been victims of sexual abuse. The members of the organization prefer to call them “girl survivors of sexual abuse” and their core mission is to help restore their childhood and self-worth.

The efforts of Cameleon Association, Inc. and its founder, Laurence Ligier, have been recognized locally and internationally. In October 2014, she received the Legion d'Honneur, the highest French National Award. Prior to this, Laurence Ligier also received numerous international recognition for her work such as the Knight of the National Order of Merit given by French President Nicolas Sarkozy; the Philippines Presidential Award given by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo; and the Award for Civic Spirit and Devotion by President of the Republic of France, Jacques Chirac.
