Intro to Clown
With Jacqueline Russell
April 21 & 22, 2018
Dive into the world of clown with Jacqueline Russell
Clown offers artists of all backgrounds a unique way to access the imagination. During the workshop participants will explore exercises designed to cultivate the freedom to physicalize, breathe and respond with honesty.
Designed for those with little or no previous experience with clown, this workshop is a safe and fun way to get a taste of some of the fundamentals of clown training. Individual and group activities will give participants the chance to practice listening, following impulses and developing a sense of play.
It is not necessary to be a performer to take this course. People from all walks of life are welcome.
