ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Le jeu and clown - play and the joy of failure!
Discover your inner idiot - sensitive, open, human, ridiculous - and genius! With your pleasure PLAY and ability to FLOP with panache you will engage with a powerful force that connects you on a profound level to the audience, opening a channel between you and them.
This work helps us get unstuck. It teaches us to listen, to re-discover play, not to push too much or shy away but to let go and be attuned to the moment. It's a rudimentary practice for anyone.
