Clowning Workshop

90 minutes


"Welcome to Clowning! If you are new to Clowning this is a wonderful place to start!
Teaching clowning in a drama class can provide a holistic approach to performance, encompassing physicality, emotion, creativity, and interpersonal skills. Clowning encourages a playful and imaginative approach to performance. Students can explore creative and unconventional ideas, fostering a sense of freedom and spontaneity in their acting. This workshop will include a series of games, improvisations, character development and play-building to increase confidence, deep listening, openness and play. Participants will experiment with exaggerated movement, status, character traits and mime within a supportive group atmosphere. Participants you will find your ‘inner clown’ and an increased ability to release inhibitions and trust your instincts in performance. Embark on a journey of chaos, laughter and discovery!"
