W h a t   t o   e x p e c t?

   You will find yourself in a clown's hideaway workroom where you will be exposed to a bit of theory and a lot of practice.

   You will get hold of the laws by which clown lives as well as be privy to some very particular clown secrets.

   This knowledge will guide you towards the character of your very own clown.

   At the end of the workshop you will participate in the creation of a clown routine.

L o g i s t i c s:

   Over the span of two full days, the workshop will focus on exploring three main elements that fuel the discovery and construction of clown and clown antics: timing, character and the sense of "I". Participants will learn about the use of gags, pauses, silence as well as the clown's accoutrements (make-up, costume, props). Furthermore, participants will be led into notions of alogism and the four levels of comedy. The confusion that "I" creates backstage, as well as on, will be addressed by tackling such questions as why do I want to become a clown?, how do I surf the highs and the flops, is there a place for my negative emotions?, and what use really is all this internal dialogue?.

   Micha Usov is currently performing in Cirque Du Soleil's TOTEM as "a melt-your-heart clown in a rowboat, turning life's simple pleasures of fishing and eating into an irresistibly funny howl"(DC Theatre Scene). A graduate of the Circus Arts College in Moscow, one of the world's most prestigious schools of clowning, Micha is also one of the founders of the award-winning clown theatre Mikos.  As a solo performer, he has won Gold and Silver medal awards at a number of major festivals, such as the International Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain (Paris, France) and the International Clown Festival (Oostend, Belgium). He has been invited to perform on many European TV networks, such as BBC London, TV5's Le Plus Grand Cabaret De Monde, and The Patrick Sebastian Show.  He is currently working on new solo material and will be sharing his work-in-process at Schkapf's "Old New Year Variety Night" on January 14, 2014.
