INTRO TO CLOWN | Don Colliver
Thursday, Dec. 22 | 7-10PM | $45
This fun and silly 3-hour workshop for adults will provide a gentle environment to notice and drop the masks we wear both onstage, and everyday. Starting with nothing, we'll focus on finding the unique game each individual has with their audience. Through seemingly simple solo and group exercises, we'll explore the clown foundations of play, vulnerability and connection. We'll tumble out the other side with a realization that your own personal vulnerability can be your most powerful tool, both in improv scene work, and in everyday life. Intended for adults at all levels of performance (or non-performance!) experience.
Come dressed to move.
