Enter a new world of clowning. Taking our cues from some of the world’s greatest clown-artists, we explore the magical potential of visual, imaginative, and emotional poetry in clowning. Create stunning imagery, work with surreal and beautiful props and costumes, invent new clowns and flood the stage with music, evocations and dreams. A unique journey into the clown’s creative psyche, unlike anything The Clown School has offered before. Ideal for returning students; suitable for all who wish to drown in metaphor and mystery.

Location Live Arts LA, Eagle Rock
Instructor Zach Steel
Cost $399 (discounts for previous Clown School participants)

Here we go! In this level 2 workshop we’ll fling open the door to the comic world and re-engage your pursuit of the most fragile, fearless, hopeful and hilarious of all creatures, the clown. From beneath the smallest mask in the world, the red nose, you’ll continue to encourage the clown’s endless curiosity, boundless enthusiasm and explosive insistence on fun (as well as reckless expression when the fun does not appear). You’ll learn to show and show – show it all including what you want to hide away from the world and defend from the audience – it’s apt to be what is most human and most interesting and funny about you! We’ll begin to play in groups (families, duos and trios) and develop the skills to find and then augment a game in improvisation with other clowns. 

Ages 18 and older.
