Clown Workshop for Actors
NEXT WORKSHOP click here
The clown is a unique
being. Not because he is “funny”, but because he shows
himself. He shares what he thinks, feels and wants. And since the
clown says YES to every situation and meeting, even if he is
not absolutely sure how to deal with it,
he will find, through his (cl own) logic solutions to living problems
and identifies the human in all things. The
clown holds up a mirror to the world in the performance and asks
the audience to see themselves in this mirror. The recognition
of myself in the clown's mirror is my laughter.
A weekend immersion into stupidity and truth taught by Lenard Petit. This is an approach to character and comedy utilizing the acting techniques of Michael Chekhov. This workshop is intended to give actors an opportunity to be able to put into form elements of their creative individuality in search of a clown. We will work with the dynamic principles of movement and the psychological gesture, archetype, imagination, imaginary body, imaginary center, atmosphere, and improvisation. A time to explore performance skills, relationship to the audience, and basic stagecraft. This is a course in being and doing, play, simplicity, and truth. Dare yourself to be studpid and learn somthing about who you are.
