Improvising as a Clown and acheiving the flow state is one of the most joyous and satisfying experiences. However, we get stuck in our heads when Clown becomes too theoratical, especially if there is too much talking. This special 1 day workshop is focused on playing, getting reps improvising, and and letting your creativity flow. There will be minimal talking from the instructor and maximum improv reps for the student. You'll have the oppurtunity to fail over and over and over, so that you can develop your gut instincts and let your creativity flow without judgement. Be ready to move and majorly fuck around.

The Bouffon plays with the naughty bits of society. Essential to our survival, Bouffon is the art of mockery and mischeif.In this workshop for clowns, comedians, actors, pranksters, and humans alike, we reshape ourselves into creatures both beautiful and grotesque at the same time. Using exercises in satire, persuasion, and audience participation, we created dynamic characters to annihilate social hierarchies, gender, and the prevalent culture. Register Here.
