Guest Workshop: Mona Thompson & Shara Tonn

Clowning | Tuesday, June 20 | 7-9PM | $40 | In the Go Comedy Theater

The art of clowning is all about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this workshop will teach you ways to bridge that gap in your performance. We will be moving quite a lot in this class so please bring water and wear clothes you can sweat in!
