Description:
The study of theatrical clown teaches us many things about ourselves as performers: how to begin from a place of simple yet energized presence, how to develop greater trust in our imagination and creative impulses, how to sustain the pleasure of playing in the moment, how to mine the power of doing one thing at a time, and above all, clown helps us accept our own unique ridiculousness, which in turn may transform our habits of restriction into skills of open expression.
