Sister Bernard Overkamp was a missionary sister in Papua New Guinea from 1968 until 1993. After 25 years she stopped her mission there because she thought the local sisters could do even good without her and she „didn’t want to be a hindrance for they cannot live their own culture.“
Since the year 2000 she and her colleague sister Dorothy are travelling with a circus in the USA. As an employee she takes http://apothekebillig.com/cialis.html care for the costumes of the female dancers. She and sister Dorothy want to be among the people and accompagny them. They call it a „ministry of presence“.
The video has been shown as a part of an installation project in public space: in camper that’s part of THE SMALLEST SHOW OF THE WORLD 2. By this, the story of the two nuns is brought back on the road and to the people.
