With Vivian Gladwell and Ali Stockford

Each Saturday from 4 PM to 6PM (UK time)
from 18 September to 6 November 2021

Clowning is the art of making mistakes and there is an art to paying attention to the unexpected, to accidents and those unintended things we do. Sometimes our striving for perfection deafens us to what the world is trying to tell us and we no longer hear the silences and what lives in them. Great wisdom can be found in making peace with our shadows and our shortcomings and clowning celebrates all our humanity, even those parts of it we are desperately trying not to be.

This level 3 course brings a fresh new way of looking at impros by focusing on the many strategies we use for avoiding mistakes. The course gives a greater focus on theatrical and improvisational techniques and will feel very different from previous levels. For example, impros are repeated which gives a chance to explore multiple possibilities that live in each moment.  It also affords a chance to work in less familiar and/or comfortable areas.

Clown 3 is a wonderful opportunity to explore and deepen your personal work on your clown with courage and play and continuing to make discoveries.

Clown 3 moves the work one step closer to performance and is an ideal preliminary for Social Clowning or other performance related work.
