Clowning & Melodrama
An investigation into finding a theatrical language to transform personal human tragedies and narratives into works of poetic clown performance for the stage.
We will search for what it is that we wish to awaken in others. Clowning is the language of the heart and the clown’s job can be to remind people of their humanity. We'll discover in clowning a real intimacy between you and people that is related to truth, the energy and emotions of the heart.
How do clowns deal with tragic situations? It’s not always about being funny; clowning can be about creating empathetic moments. We can play in themes about separation, love, sickness, loneliness and more!
In two days we will explore:
