All in the Family
In this episode of Spark, you'll meet families that make art together. Circus artist Gypsy Snider grew up in San Francisco's Pickle Family Circus, then toured with Cirque du Soleil. Now she's taking the biggest risk of her career: launching a circus of her own, Les Sept Doigts de la Main, and bringing her 2-year-old daughter along with her. In our second story, we meet Sahara Sunday Spain, a published poet and accomplished dancer, singer/songwriter and visual artist ... who is only 12 years old. Together, she and her mother, photographer and activist Elizabeth Sunday, make a formidable two-career family. And finally, patriarch Miguel Govea has been a fixture in the Bay Area Latin music scene for decades. Now the rest of his family, including his two daughters, are joining him onstage and in the recording studio with La Familia Peña-Govea.
