Course InformationDuration: 1 week, 10.00am - 5.00pm
I A Clown will bring you on a journey to uncover the clown inside you.
The course will encourage you to take an in-depth look at your full self to find your own clown state. Through this process, you will gain an understanding of what it is to be ‘authentically present’ and how to bring that into your performance.
This course is led by Raymond Keane and will explore theatrical approaches to and the theory of clown. By exploring the four temperaments, the use of masks and The Mask of Red Nose we aim to help you increase your flexibility and range of expression.
Raymond is a founding member of the multi-award-winning Barabbas Theatre Company and has over 30 years of experience as a theatre-maker, clown performer, and teacher.
