When you want someone to think, give them Cause To Wonder.


Current Project

"Helping Women Brings Good things."

Goal: End the expression, "If I don't beat my women, it means that I don't love them." and start the expression "Helping Women Brings Good Things." 

Changing attitudes about domestic violence, in the minds of young men, is central to improving the human condition. Started in collaborations with YWCA Ethiopia, this program is currently being presented in the West Indies.  We travel island to island creating street theater for social change that uses curiosity and spontaneous interaction. Impact studies of our work, show that introducing a phrase with the interest created by a single encounter with Cause to Wonder's combination of storytelling and magic tricks, can achieve 104%  retention.

"A Clean Lake is a Happy Life."

Goal: To teach generations of  villagers, who have never seen indoor plumbing, the dangers of defecating in and pouring chemicals into the lake from which they eat and drink, the storyteller introduces the phrase "A Clean Lake Is A Happy Life" with shocking special effects that make it appear as if everyone gets covered in feces after a baby defecates in the water.
