Let’s Clown Train!
(an intensive improvisation and deepening on clown technique Workshop)
by Lila Monti)
This workshop is like an engine. A bunch of classical clown exercises in wich you will find the way to train all your clown “muscles”. One by one these different classically clownish situations will allow you to move your clown body and soul to expand them, fix them, transform them, tone them, developing your ability in listening on the present (you, your partner/s, the space around you, the objects, the audience), transforming the stimuli received by the clown into action, building games and making them grow.
To deepen and develop the clown technique emphasizing on:
.Contact with the public, the clown’s own emotions and the here and now.
.Listening to the partners.
.Development of imagination and game.
.Transformation of impulses into action.
.Projection, availability and stage presence.
.Improvisation from assignments. (solo, duo and trio)
.Passage through fragility, failure and exposition.
Your clown costume, nose and objects.
