WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Apparently there is a clown in every one of us. Yes it's a fact but we just don't know it yet.
This clown seeks attention, loves to play and hides in vulnerable spots we don't really like to reveal.
It is not easy finding and defining this inner clown. It takes a lot of adaptation and confrontation and last an audience. A clown is born in front of an audience and without the latter, there is no clown.
During this two day workshop you will be seeking your inner clown. Physical theatre exercises will be given to build a strong body base and will be later developed with improvisation tasks and clowning exercises.
