Clowning Masterclass 

This intensive two-day workshop will train performers on awareness, presence and complicity.

Beyond a character, the clown can be defined as a kind of spirit; a quality of energy that arises from the joy of celebrating the uniqueness of each moment with others.

This masterclass offers a repertoire of games and exercises played in complicity with the audience, to test and train your ability to communicate using the most sensitive, true, passionate, stripped, ridiculous and funny parts of your personality. 

“In clowning, what transcends is not what is said; there is something behind that, which is the goal of training: to find that transparent body to connect with a type of presence which is already eloquent in itself.” – Guillermo Angelelli

  • Dates: 20, 27 Aug (Saturdays)
  • Time: 9 AM – 6 PM (includes a lunch break)
