"Clown characters are not created, they are uncovered." Avner Eisenberg
In this workshop students will begin the journey of uncovering their personal clowns. This type of clowning uses a red nose and is rooted in the teachings and techniques of Jacques Lecoq, which utilize the actor's habitual mannerisms, walk, gestures and idiosyncrasies as tools to finding his or her unique clown character. No experience necessary-just an open heart and a brave soul!
