Miles began his career in circus arts with the Humboldt Circus, a student led circus and theatre arts club at Humboldt State University. There he rose to the ranks of Co-head Clown and led the circus into their Fall 2010 presentation of “A-Box-a-Lips Now!”, a pre and post-apocalyptic exploration of circus after civilization.
Upon leaving the Humboldt Circus, Miles Smiles, hungry for inspiration, joined the Freelove Circus as a clown for their Summer 2011 tour “On the Trail of Bigfoot”. The tour took him on a quest throughout the Pacific Northwest and Europe to find and capture the historic and legendary Bigfoot. The Europe tour had an astonishing impact on Miles and pushed him to go fully international.
At the start of 2012 he left his home destined for the far east to help spearhead the K-Town Circus, an international circus troupe specializing in fire shows, located in Kaoshiung, Taiwan. Miles spent the better part of two years in Eastern Asia honing his skills and performing as much as possible.
Upon returning home he quickly became involved in the Rainbow Family Circus and toured British Colombia, Canada.
He then traveled back to his circus roots in Humboldt to join the Circus Emporium Road Show, a circus sideshow and odditorium based in Arcata, CA. Miles Smiles was a clown and juggler for The Emporium's Winter 2013 tour to Texas and the southwest and stayed performing with them through 2014.
At the start of 2015 Miles Smiles moved to the SF bay area and has been performing and teaching circus arts there ever since. WEBSITE
Hearts of Khyber is a collective of musicians and dancers who represent the nomads that traveled the ancient Silk Road. While crossing the continents, they absorbed the traditions, music, and dance from the multiple cultures they encountered.
The first groups of these travelers migrated into Great Britain by the end of the 15th century. They were initially welcomed by the local gentry and royalty to camp on the outskirts of towns or just outside city walls, and were often paid for playing music or telling fortunes.
Hearts of Khyber derives its name from the Khyber Pass, an integral, yet often treacherous, part of the ancient Silk Road. Having a heart of Khyber means you have the strength and fortitude to be the hardiest of travelers!
Come and visit the Hearts of Khyber encampment and watch these mysterious travelers perform live, historical music and dance!"
