Staging an impromptu puppet show in Red Square before the police arrive.

The Foundation grew from a series of projects and stunts in Russia celebrating Perestroika and the end of the Cold War. Bill Brookman and US clown-doctor Patch Adams with 20 American clowns let off balloons and whoopee cushions in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. Bill Brookman played his One Man Band on stilts on Nevsky Prospekt, St Petersburg, and Moscow's Red Square, confounding and winning over the security services.
