CLOWN workshop (or the pleasure of being ridiculous)
One week workshop
13 until 17 August.
During the workshop we'll try, through improvisations, to discover the inner idiot that we have inside us and make others laugh. Once dicovered we must be able to be proud of it, to have pleasure to show it off to the others.
We'll pass over some technical rutines to help the students
understand the process of devising a number or a show.
Finally we'll go into improvisation work, where we'll focus on finding the state of the clown.
CLOWN TECHNIQUE (or what to do whit our clown):
We'll study some classic Clown and comedy rutines to
give the students some basic tools that can be useful
when they face putting an idea on stage: (The ability of our
Clown, play situations as a clown, classic rutines (duos,
trios), energy, tension and rythm, the body of our Clown
(Motors, gestures, tics, actitudes...), status, laws of
THE STATE OF OUR CLOWN (Where is my Clown?):
Through improvisation exercises and provocations we'll
find the state of our Clown basing our work on the
reactions of the audience and always looking for the Clown that makes others laugh. We'll learn how to find the pleasure of games and how to take profit of our most ridiculous side.
(The game, pleasure of being ridiculous, failuire as motor for the Clown (Mr. Flop), fragility and inocence, positive spirit...)
