Discover Your Clown – Red Nose Clowning
The ‘child like’ person behind the red nose is hidden in all of us. We all have a clown living somewhere inside us. Sometimes our clown energy is readily apparent; sometimes buried so deeply that nobody knows where it came from, who it is, or what makes it tick. Clowns are powerful communicators of action, expression, sounds and emotions. They are not worrying about whether whatever they do makes sense or if it is the right thing to do. The more it goes wrong, more the success. They fail, accept and try again.
This is a workshop for everyone starting from students, homemakers, office goers and artists. The preliminary lively exercises will help to open your imaginary world. It is designed to provide tools for performers to make specific choices from the world of endless possibilities. By using contemporary clown principles, you will be able to work ‘here and now’ on stage.
The workshop aims at a playful exploration and opening up the basic Clown principles and rules.
Seeking one’s own clown is primarily working towards self expression. This workshop will help you to develop a freedom in improvisation. It will help you to grasp the essence of ‘ living in the moment’ and develop a relationship not only with space and object but also to yourself and others.
