This workshop is not offered every term. If you would like to be informed when it becomes available, please click here.

Strip away layers of self-consciousness while familiarizing yourself with the bare-bones of theatrical clowning. Learn to establish a direct and immediate relationship with an audience and become complicit with scene partners while moving through performance space with musicality. You will focus on exercises in clowning, physical comedy, and improvisation to heighten one's natural sense of play. Amaze yourself as you begin to master the skillful juxtaposition of emotional blundering and physical precision. This class can be taken more than once.
