DEVISING WITH CLOWN
June 5-15, Mon - Thurs, 6:30 - 9:30 (over a period of two weeks)
This two week workshop is aimed at those students with the desire to create theatrical work / performance that arises from clown as a level of play and rehearsal / creation tool. Through the group's collaborative explorations, participants will learn to invent, devise and create narrative that is comic, ridiculous, profound and engaging. Participants can bring an idea/project to the workshop but this is not required.
Workshop fee: $275 (14 person capacity)
to register please contact Afton@wldrnss.org
July 17 - 21, Mon - Fri, 6:30 - 9:30 (one week)
In this physical and practical workshop, participants will explore two levels of theatrical clown: Simple Clown (the epitome of unbridled theatrical play) and Pathetic Clown (clown thrust into a dramatic situation). They will discover what is innately ridiculous about themselves and learn how to exploit that for an audience. They will learn to play and invent from a truly spontaneous, honest and open place and explore ways to communicate from that place with an audience on a universal level; exploring innocence (naïveté), simplicity, idiocy, anarchy, the absurd, and pure playfulness.
Workshop fee: $175 (18 person capacity)
