Speak the unspeakable, play with what is forbidden, and tear it up so bad you leave us all in tears (from laughter… maybe). In the pursuit of the bouffon you will develop your ability to play directly with the audience, find pleasure in the dangerous, deliver brutal honesty and practice parody. Use status, mockery, and satire to expose what you care about and say what you really want to say. Learn to create physically connected, unexpected and expressive characters, improvise and be 100% present.
In this workshop we will take on the present day to find a contemporary bouffon and seize the lunacy not of the middle ages but of this moment in time. HERE. NOW. Admission is open to students over 18 - No prerequisites or experience necessary!

Clown For All Weekend
It’s a complete disaster of fun and chaos... Everyone's invited! Exercises will be tailored to each individual's level and built to encourage both discovery and continuing growth: encouraging the new and provoking the veterans simultaneously. We will surely illuminate something elusive and rare: the comic world (with great peals of laughter)! Admission is open to all students
