About the class

Improvise through the eyes of a clown. Your body and mind send you an endless stream of impulses. The clown, through its vulnerability, responds instinctively to those momentary shifts. Through clown-work you step out of your critical mind and begin to improvise with your physical and emotional self, discovering games and truth in the moment and uncovering what is uniquely funny about you. By listening to the audience, the clown abandons all of its pre-conceived ideas and follows its true instinctual drive, to play and have fun!

This is a two-day class intensive meeting Sat & Sun 1pm-6pm.
