Acting through Clown 

Monday evening six week short course
29th October - 3rd December 2018

Acknowledging your own ridiculousness and vulnerability is a brave and wonderful thing and it is from this place that we can make beautiful and very funny theatre. Clowning not only teaches the performer to find the games and stay optimistic but also how to be bold and take risks. It is with this resilience the clown can make a genuine and honest connection.  

In this six week, highly enjoyable and safe workshop we will:
Discover our own individual clown and how it works
Learn to accept and truly connect with the audience
Become bolder and take greater risks 
Learn how to stay light and optimistic even in the darkest moments
Become resilient and trust our impulses 
Devise and find ways to create with clown
Rediscover the pleasure of making mistake
Experience the joy of the flop

This workshop is suitable for performers who have no experience in clown, or the very experienced who want to try something new. 

Stephen Sobal

This short course will be lead by ‘All in’ Artistic Director Stephen Sobal.
