ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The study of showing up, being open, sensitive, vulnerable, human and ridiculous. Discover your special quality that connects you to others, being present and engaging to an audience, connecting and 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.
This form is studied to discover one's clown. For actors it's an essential workout to become more sensitive, open and connected to yourself and your audience. For non-actors it's a practice of facing fears, showing up and finding a powerful connection with others.
"With this work people have to find a way of being beautiful and surprising... and by beautiful I mean being in the grip of pleasure or freedom".
