Clowning Workshop

Foundations of clowning with Jon Davison

Sat 27 October, 1pm - 5pm



This workshop will look at the fundamentals of clowning, learning to feel and enjoy our own ridiculousness. Converting our habitual fear of ridicule into the pleasure of laughing at ourselves, we can use it to make others laugh and experience the freedom of the clown.

When you really look, most things are ridiculous: our bodies, our movements, our ideas, our emotions, our words, our relationships, the universe. The only aim in clowning is to turn failure into success, fear into laughter, suffering into joy. We don’t need to change ourselves, just look at everything from another perspective. It’s a human thing to do, so anyone can do it.

The workshop will use simple and effective exercises that have been developed over many years teaching all kinds of people all over the world. These exercises have the sole aim of cultivating a dynamic relationship between us which is based on laughing at ourselves. When we share laughter, amazing things happen!

Instructor Jon Davison is a clown performer, teacher and instructor with almost four decades of experience. To read more about him, see HERE.
