About the event

The seminar addresses itself to performers, therapists, educators or any person is interested in exploring new paths of expression and their creative potentials.

🤡Clown journey starts when you let yourself immerse into the Unknown aspects of your personality. When you experience imbalance situations and connect with the untamed Other within yourself who deeply enjoys the chaotic and unpredictable nature of life.

✨Clown is a big hero/in following his/her impulses and eager to find his/her own unique solution for any problem that emerges through his/her poetic journey. He/she is a playful being existing in the HERE and NOW, pregnant to full of surprises for us and for himself/herself. Clown is doing everything with pleasure and a sense of joy!

>>In this workshop we will develop the ability of accepting chaos, failure and the completely unknown as vital elements within our creative process. We will awake our bodies, our playfulness, our awareness, our simplicity and we will free ourselves from fears and judgments through games, movement, improvisations, method of 3 sec and collective singing. It’s a creative process of bringing out our hidden, unlived qualities and creating a playful dialogue with them.The red nose which is the smallest mask in the world, will guide the individual clowns to emerge and we will work with their presence, projection, rhythm and vital relationship with the audience.
