The Calgary Clown Festival is proud to be hosting the Art of Physical Theatre Workshop with Cheryl Hutton. Get specific with your body’s physical actions and reactions and avoid being the oh-so-boring “talking head” on stage! Expand your physical vocabulary, and develop tools for playing comedy using the techniques of physical impulses, improvisation, slapstick, and accidents, in solo and group exercises.
This 90 min course will cater to all levels of experience and abilities – those who have done this work before and those who are fresh. We recommend this course as the perfect place to explore and learn. Come and join the fun! The September 10th workshop is for those who are ages 13-17. The September 11th workshop is for those who are ages 18+.
