Clown Meets Improv
Sunday, January 14, 2024
Instructor: Jet Eveleth
Class Fee: $85
Location: The Benedict Event Center at 1401 Quintana Road
Class Description: This workshop is for anyone who wants to blend the art of improv with the playfulness of clown. Designed for performers who want to get out of the head and into the body, to be more present and to find more truth in character work. This style is derived from the approach of TJ and Dave, Mick Napier as well as Lecoq and Philippe Gaulier. This workshop explores clown's relationship to improvisation with a focus on tapping into truthful emotion and finding honest action. Open to all levels as the techniques will be new to everyone.
