Beyond Maximum: Going Farther than the Fartherness of Fartherdom that Lies Beyond the Farthertude of Fartherdomishness (and Beyond)
Let's have some fun, together, exploring the unknown!
In this workshop we will take 2 evenings to work on 1 concept: Going Farther.
For me, this one concept is one of the most exciting and rewarding elements of Clown or Bouffon- to go farther than either you or the audience thought you would, (or even could).
Together, in the spirit of play, we will explore how we might go
Farther with physicality.
Farther into an emotion or attitude.
Farther into expressing a concept
Farther in how you engage an audience.
Providing we stay within these rules:
1. You don't hurt yourself
2. You don't hurt the audience
3. You don't hurt the space.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.It's time to surprise ourselves. To end up someplace no one expected. Who knows what could happen?!
About the instructor:
Eric Davis's Bouffon show, Red Bastard, sold out its run and received ten 5-star reviews at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival in 2013. It was subsequently named one of the top 5 shows in the U.K. by The LIST Magazine. Mr. Davis has won awards for Best Theater, Most Outrageous Show, numerous Best of Fests, as well as Commitment to Community Award and a Golden Nose for Clown of the Year. In 2011 he originated the role of Allen Smithee in Cirque du Soleil's resident Hollywood show, IRIS. He is also proud to be founder of the NY Clown Theatre Festival. His failings, though impressive, are too numerous to account for here.
