Holly Stoppit’s Introduction to Clowning Weekend, November 2019
2-day workshop gently immersing you into the state of clown, where everything is possible and nothing is quite as it seems. You' ll be led through a carefully paced progression of group games and exercises, designed to free up your body, voice and imagination, anchoring you in the present, connecting you with the group and helping you to effortlessly enter into the states of flow and play. From here, your clown will start to emerge. Over the weekend, you'll experience a multitude of technical comedy exercises, all geared towards helping you release more laughter from audiences. We'll explore how physicality, breath, timing, rhythm, surprise and truth provoke laughter. You'll discover how embracing and sharing your vulnerability through your clown can open up an audacious, laughter-laden quality of connection with audiences.
10am-6pm each day. Cost: £150 standard / £120 low income / £90 no income. 18+. This event must be booked in advance. For more info and an application form please visit the website.
