An Introduction to Clown Play and Theatre with Marya Folinsbee      

1 Class: Mar. 30 Saturday 10 am – 4 pm

Course Description:

A whirlwind day of playful exercises to help you step into your inner clown. Explore the dynamic, weird and transformative world of clown theatre, where we tap into our silliness, curious wonder, and taboo-smashing impulses. Activities will include improvisational movement and theatre games, playful self-expression, and archetypal story-building and story-telling, with the help of a little red nose. This is a short, introductory course that will give you a taste of how to explore the clown realm. Suitable for performers, parents, and anyone who takes themselves too seriously.

Course Fee: $75     Material Fee:  $15
