This course will explore changing the architecture of the body, asking-
What is the shape and rhythm of fun?

Participants will disguise their bodies by altering their shape. What is the potential of this new game of the body and what new personas will it lead you to?

The game of the body includes:

Articulation
Space, weight, time, flow,
Shape and Line
Motifs
Stillness and movement,
Counterpoint
And dynamic contrasts…

Feel the freedom of the mask and the technique that is required to fill it!

MAPPING YOUR CLOWN: The Plan and The Play

COMING SOON

SEND AN EMAIL TO BE CONTACTED WHEN ANNOUNCED

The difference between THE PLAN and THE PLAY is where your clown lives.

The myriad of impulses, running like a current under your social self- contain ridiculous and compelling beauty.

Using looping exercises we will excavate, clarifying these ridiculous impulses, transforming them into playable actions, emotions and relationships which can be used to clown pieces.

BOUFFON COURSE DESCRIPTION

BOUFFON: A Satiric Ensemble of Anti-Clowns!

Unleash your inner Bouffon in an explosion of fun and comedy gold.

Imagine a wild-eyed pack of Players, ecstatic to mock anything and everything. Ridiculous, confronting and poetic, this Satyric chorus teeters on the edge of fun and uncomfortable truth.
How is Bouffon related to Clown? 
The World laughs at the Clown, but the Bouffons laugh at the World! 
To begin this journey, we focus on the role of “The Player”. Students will discover the attitude and drives of the Bouffon, through:     - Ensemble play & Complicity     - Chorus work     - Finding the fun in mocking     - Non-linear play.        - Investigating dynamics of objects, actions, and roles.    

Join us! Fun, freedom and mischief await!

Suitable for actors, clowns, comedians, improvisers, dancers, devisors and anyone investigating pleasure, play and fun.
