Workshop: Taste the Clown or A Very Mini HAHA
Three hours is not that long, people, but in this workshop, based on a series of exercises designed by Christopher Bayes, we will begin at the beginning to address, expose and explore some of the most basic components of the clown. Prepare to get bigger, more beautiful, stupid and simpler than you already are. Open yourself up to the great theatrical possibilities that stem from your deepest fears, tragedies and celebrations. This work gives the performer greater access to his dreams, impulses, and humor, thereby freeing possibilities for poetic, highly theatrical and potentially bizarre worlds to emerge. The clown touches something very new, very deep and yet very familiar in us all, acknowledging in both performer and audience the need for a good cry, a great laugh, a profound sigh, or a triumphant yawp.
