Clowning is a state of playfulness that brings us to experience a child-like, naïve and vulnerable state of being. Paradoxically we grow, learn and are strengthened through reconnecting playfully with what makes us most vulnerable. This approach to clowning is not a technique (tricks, gags and routines) but a personal journey towards finding one’s own unique way of being a clown, by listening and being receptive, essential skills for any creative and imaginative expression. It is only when we let go of our control over things that we begin to be surprised by the depth of what reveals itself to us. Come for a weekend of letting go and freeing up!
The workshop is run by Alison Stockford who is an experienced performer. She has worked in café-théâtre with Les Amuses Gueules in Lille, France, Street Theatre and Theatre in Education with Inside Out Theatre Company, Hastings.

For the workshop, please bring one or two props to share. This could be a piece of cloth, an everyday object, an inflatable object - anything that feels safe to use on stage and would like to try out - and most importantly it does not have to be funny! Also bring a hat or cap and your own nose, if you have one. If not it is possible to borrow/buy one.
This course will be taught in English.
