The Art of BOUFFON

Mondays, October 31st - November 21

A workshop for comedians, clowns, artists, and pranksters alike. Bouffon is the art of satire, pursuasion, and mockery, sometimes referred to as the anti-clown. In this class we reshape ourselves into something new and surprising. We search for ecstasy in mockery, and develop a socially conscience voice. Using exercises in satire, clown, and audience participation, we created dynamic characters to challenge an audience and create change. Space is limited.
