A Touch of Clown
This course focuses on elements of both Italian and Pochinko-Style Clown Training. In this workshop, exercises are used to awaken and encourage a sense of presence, an awareness of the audience, and an honest physical and emotional response to internal impulses and external events. The workshop is geared to expand the participant’s experience of perception and focus. The body (through specific movement exercises) is approached as a source of visualization for character or story elements through improvisations. Through this workshop the rules of Clown emerge giving the student a fundamental understanding of Clown and a deeper experience of the elements at play in any performance situation. This workshop is an intense blast and furnishes the student with multiple characters and a malleable structure for continued creative exploration with limitless applications.
