A two-part workshop series encouraging participants to discover their own ridiculous eccentricities and lay the foundation for their own unique performance language.
Have you ever forgotten your train-of-thought mid-sentence? Or said the wrong thing accidentally that made what you were saying inappropriate? Have you ever just made a fool of yourself in public? If so, then you have experienced what we clowns call the Flop. Studying the clown helps one to use accidents in an engaging manner while highlighting ones unique idiosyncrasies.
This will be a whirlwind pair of online classes exploring the physical and playful style of clown performance in the context of original creation. Participants will first discover their eccentricities and lay a foundation for their individual performance language. Then, as a group, we will all discover and shape each participants own short clown performances. At the end of the project, there will be an opportunity the participants to showcase their pieces to a public audience " if you dare and only if youd like to. The classes are open to anyone and no performance experience is necessary " just a willingness to explore and to embrace the ridiculous.
