Discover Your Clown

— EdVenture Frome
Weekend Workshop to share LAUGHTER, INNOCENCE and CLOWN-CURIOSITY-LOGIC
time:10:00
price: Tickets Below

Information:

COME Discover Your Clown, explore your UNIQUE PLAYFULNESS and how to use MOVEMENT, RHYTHM, OBJECTS and VOCALISATION to create the foundation for a CLOWN SKETCH.

The wonderful thing about clowning is the barrier between the interior and exterior is thin …. non-existent. We can look to children as the best teachers - take the lollipop away, it’s gone forever, they cry - replace it with a flower,,mesmerising colours and smell, they smile So re-awaken your own child…...

Share LAUGHTER, INNOCENCE and CLOWN-CURIOSITY-LOGIC.

We’ll approach the state of clown as both therapeutic and performative.

THE WORKSHOP:

Would you like to inspire the muscle of your imagination? Would you like to feel the spontaneity of disinhibition? During this weekend workshop we will explore the following:
Expressive movement with the body
Exercises to access your unique playfulness
Improvisation
Innocence and presence - responsiveness to the immediate environment
Deepening your relationship to your clown through play
Using rhythm and sound
Objects, their movement and character
Structuring the steps of a dramatic build

There will be a mixture of group work, pair work and one-to-one feedback throughout the day.

Perhaps the essential truth of the clown is that honesty is funny.

Creatively Safe and Creatively Stretched.
