I’ll be leading a workshop for Clowns Without Borders at Clown Encuentro Internacional!
PHYSICAL COMEDY and CREATION FOR THE SOCIAL CLOWN
In this workshop students will learn how to create quickly in ensemble. Drawing from the Clowns Without Borders way, where clowns often meet their team on location for the tour, we will come together in three short days to create a show. We will learn non-verbal tools of physical comedy, acrobatic slapstick, and audience interaction in order to create a fun, powerful show that will allow you to connect with audiences around the world. Clown exercises will help you develop a stronger awareness of your embodied stage presence, while building the tools to express an authentic character through physicality and movement, rather than through language. We will cover social circus necessities, like how to keep the audience safe, how to define a performance space in a conflict zone or refugee camp, and how to uplift the audience. Finally, we will take our show to the streets!
