In this workshop Denni Dennis will combine his background of the European style of Jacques Lecoq, Russian character clown and the Pochinko method, with his personal experience working in clown and as a clown teacher.

Throughout this workshop, you will explore the clown's world  what makes us laugh and why, with an emphasis on having fun and searching for the beauty and poetry of each clown. Denni will help you take the necessary risk to become honest with yourself and who you are, as that is the only way to make your clown exist.

This workshop will allow you space and opportunity to explore plastic training, status play, improvisation, parody, and your personal creativity, working individually and within groups.
