ABOUT THE EVENT

Connection Through Play: A Beginner's Clowning Workshop

In this workshop, we will explore the fundamentals of discovering your own clown. Clowning demands the performer is in touch with their own personal clown, it's impossible to do if you're basing it entirely on someone else's character. Through the red nose and the human medium of play we will begin to explore what it's like to be your true self on stage. No character,
no costume, no lines or script to hide behind, just you and your audience staring back. When we really out into the eyes of our audience, we truly discover, that we are all idiots at heart.

DETAILS
  • An introduction to the fundamentals of clowning
  • Participants will play games and perform short scenes designed to help them discover their own clown
  • No prior experience needed

WHAT TO BRING

- A bottle of water
