Meditating Clown Workshop

Fri, Oct 18 - Sun, Oct 20

Have you ever wanted to be more relaxed on stage?

Join Avyen von Waldenburg in the “Meditating Clown Workshop”. In this class we will explore the subtleties of Clowning utilizing meditation sitting and Mary Overlie’s “The 6 Viewpoints” and Laban Shapes as tools to access and communicate with ourselves & the audience.

One of the most important things for a performer is to be aware of what is happening and it may not be what we expect. Using elements of Clown we will learn techniques on “Reading the Room”, the difference between Doing and Being, seeing and playing the audience as a piano (with embodied awareness), and we will touch upon the techniques of “How to Fail Better” aka the value of nothing.

October 18th, 19th, 20th – Fri, Sat, and Sun 6-10pm

$150-200 Sliding Scale
