Jump into your body...open like a little flower...rediscover your playful spirit and the simple pleasure and ferocious generosity of performance. In this workshop we pursue the clown together in all of its messy and hilarious beauty. Your relationship to all other forms of drama will be enriched by the openness and reckless abandon that the clown requires.
The language of the seminar will be English, with consecutive interpretation into Chinese.
