This workshop is for people with some performance experience; as a clown, actor, improviser or comedian. It helps if you have had some clown training. We will build on all the core learning areas of the ‘Intro to Clown’ workshop (Looking to the Laugh, Repeating the Funny, Learning to Love the Flop, Saving your Mate, Doing Something vs Doing Nothing) and I will begin to provoke you as the ‘Boss Clown’ to help you find the ridiculous. We will explore finding the game within the scene and we may even attempt to insert clowns into scripted scenes. The workshop will finish by looking at ways to create clown scenes and I will run you through how I build a show (although this may still be some way off for you). Focus: Provoking the Idiot Finding the Game Clowns in Scripted Scenes Creating Original Clown Material/Scenes Full refund available up to 48hrs before the workshop begins.
