Rediscover the joy of performance through “Le Jeu” and clown. Learn to play, develop complicity, gain sensitivity, embrace taking risks, and find the freedom to fail. Inspired by the pedagogy of the French clown master Philippe Gaulier, this workshop is for anyone who wants to get out of their head and follow their impulses.
Final performance on Sunday April 2nd at 7:00pm
This class is about giving the actor/improviser a fresh take. We will look at how to make improvisation dynamic while still taking your time. We will explore how narrative improvisation can change how we discover character and deepen relationships on stage.
