In this workshop students will rediscover the joy of performance through “Le Jeu” and clown.

Studying “Le Jeu”, students will learn how to play, find complicity, develop physical agility and find stillness in performance.

As clowns, students will learn how to break down the fourth wall and connect with their audience. They will learn to embrace the “flop” and find the freedom to fail.

Inspired by the pedagogy of the French clown master, Philippe Gaulier, this workshop is for all types of performers: actors, clowns, comedians, improvisers… Anyone who wants to get out of their head and follow their impulses.

WHEN

  • Saturday September 29th, 11am - 5pm (including 1 hour of break time)

  • Sunday September 30th, 11am - 5pm (including 1 hour of break time)
