THE CLOWN-HERO's DAY
Another pragmatic and efficient workshop – the perfect opportunity for anyone who's curious to discover clowning and perhaps dispel a few preconceived ideas about what it is.
a comic entertainer who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities, especially one in a circus, wearing a traditional costume and exaggerated make-up.
After a solid warm up and preparative exercises based on the Seidenstein method, we'll practise how to be clowns – i.e. we'll be clowning. We may put on some costume, but we won't be wearing any make-up (unless someone really, really wants to: they can).
Warm up and preparation
• use your body, feel it, trust it, play with it
• entries, exits, walks
• solo and duo improvisations
• make a perfect mess of anything
• locate the archetypal in the trivial
• transform the mundane
Apart from having serious fun, you will gain valuable insight in:
Real clowns talking about their work...
L'atelier sera aussi bilingue qu'il faut (français et anglais) selon les besoins des participants. Le travail est avant tout corporel.
