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.
