Intelligence is Limited ~ Stupidity is Infinite!

Welcome to the world of Red Nose Clown where your unique stupidity is celebrated and encouraged! The root meaning of the word 'stupid' comes from Latin, stupere, meaning 'to be amazed or stunned.'

In this theatrical clowning intensive, the work will be the discovery of your own unique clown - exploring and excavating what is funny about You. It will be a colorful journey filled with beauty, terror, laughter, emotion and vulnerability. And fun! Let's not forget fun! Through a body-based process you will leave with a foundation for your very own clown character.

In doing so, we will practice the art of play, explore energized presence on stage, indulge in the pleasure of the moment, fine tune deep listening, and learn how to be generous to an audience. This workshop is suitable for anyone who identifies as a human being! Side effects may include more joy, openness to life, self-discovery and lovable laughter.
