Home / Event / CLOWN 1-STUTTGART-MARCH 2018


Friday 23 March - Tuesday 27 March 2018
Starts 15:00 on first day - Finishes 18:00 on last day

lookingThe word ‘courage’ comes from a root that means ‘heart’. Through clowning and connecting to our playful spirit we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves. ‘Taking heart’ is a profoundly inward process, and an invitation to overcome the fears that block us from being fully present in the here and now.
The full course establishes the ground for all our work and is an essential first step before going on to more advanced courses.

The group size is limited to 12.                  

Date and times: First day starts at 15:00 – 18:00
Last day finishes at 13:30
Other days 10:00 to 18:00

Tea and coffee will be provided in the breaks.

Catherine Bryden

Bryden_4Catherine (Montreal, Canada) discovered the magical mysterious world of theater clowning in Germany in 2001. This approach to life and living nurtures her deep love and fascination of people, play, relationships, community and above all, the stunning beauty of imperfection. She’s been submerged in teaching, communication and creative processes for over three fun filled decades on three continents: North America, Asia (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China) and Europe. Catherine brings loving audacity and gentle chaos to workshops and the stage, in English, French and German.
