Experience the joy of failure! 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 - to find our open, sensitive, vulnerable, human and ridiculous quality. For performers, non-performers, actors and clowns yes but also...

dancers, filmmakers, painters, musicians, writers, stand-up comics, poets, teachers, acrobats, lawyers, doctors, public speakers, life coaches, facilitators, administrators, toy-makers, surfers, rocket-scientists, computer programmers, inventors, Feldenkrais practitioners, massage therapists, yoga instructors, chefs, event planners, mindfulness practitioners, psychotherapists, social workers, university professors and many others have participated.

John Beale is an actor and a teacher of acting, improvisation and clown. He is a graduate of the Philippe Gaulier École international de théâtre in France, and he has trained, performed and taught extensively as a company member with the internationally acclaimed Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Massachusetts. He is now on faculty at Humber College, George Brown College, Seneca College at York, Randolph College and The Toronto Film School. John is also a master clown and has offered clown performance workshops and coaching since 2005.

John's master teacher, Philippe Gaulier, is a world renowned theatre master and clown teacher, heading his own international school for over 25 years and turning out such talent as Sacha Baron Cohen, Emma Thompson and the founders of Theatre de Complicite.

"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.
