This course offers further practice of clowning with the focus on structure and relationship (such as the Elder-Younger structure). At this level come we practice responsiveness to and awareness of your partner on stage, your audience and the images,  stories and characters that emerge during improvisation. The teaching method will emphasize finding greater insights into the techniques of improvisation and performance, providing enough challenges and inspiration to take your understanding of this work forward.

Level II is a pre-requisite for Clown 3, Towards Performance and Social Clowning.
