The company's award-winning production of Cirque Ingenieux began touring the United States in 1996, with a highly successful run in Tucson in 1999. Goldberg personally has traveled the world bringing back to the productions performers from the Mongolian School of Contortion, Chinese & Polish Acrobatic Associations and the Moscow State College for Circus & Variety Arts.
