Workshops (Calgary): Don’t Call It Clown – Deanna Fleysher

Workshops (Calgary): Don’t Call It Clown – Deanna Fleysher

Don’t Call It Clown
May 20 – 22, 2024
With Deanna Fleysher

For the first time ever in Calgary, Deanna Fleysher is coming to bring her two legendary workshops to Alberta.
These workshops always sell out early so act fast !!

This intensive workshop will demand your heart, your guts, and all your fluids. We will see how funny you can be when you give it all you’ve got. We will learn about your unique connection to the audience, your special brand of vulnerable ferocity, and the deep art you are capable of. Connect with your audiences like never before, and make them love you forever. In this 3-day, 15-hour intensive, expect the following:

  • A deeper connection to and understanding of your audience
  • Personalized feedback (and plenty of it).
  • Discovery and exploration of your “sweet spots”: unique ways that you move/be (emotional/physical states) that your audience especially enjoys.
  • More understanding of what “stage magnetism” means for you, and how to really harness your performative power.
- The beginnings of new characters and sketches.
  • More wildness, more bravery, more vulnerability.
  • Interpretive Dance.
  • Laughing a lot.

This workshop is ideal for improvisers, clowns/bouffons, stand-up comedians, actors, movers, and anyone who wants to be more magnetic, funny or brave in front of others than they currently are.
