A gathering of clowns with the intention of offering a free space for creation and development of new acts/characters/clowns/double acts and solo pieces.

We will create a workshop environment which will foster laughter, fun and connection. The simple goal- to practice the art of connecting to the audience, finding your flow, accepting the laughter or accepting the flop and forgiving the audience for not laughing if that is the reality.

Come and explore clown through the practice of authenticity, making each other laugh and surprising the room and mostly ourselves.

Each week a different clown will lead the fun. If you have experience in clown and have never facilitated this is your chance- do get in touch. The focus will be about how we can access our unique humour and be seen through core clown exercises.
