A clown bootcamp

A clown bootcamp honing in on the essential elements of performing in the state of play known as ‘CLOWN’. This workshop embraces pedagogy from both the LeCoq and Gaulier lineage of exercises and games. Grounded firmly in Le Jeu (the pleasure of the game) and opening up participants bodies up to their own individual brand of funny! It’s a positive and curious workshop exploring the eyes of the clown, embodied play, the logic of clown play, complicité (playing together), and true audience connection. This is a workshop crucial for physical performers who want to deepen their understanding of playing generously for their audience. Participants will also explore the device of the ‘red nose’ and the technique associated with this very small mask. 

Kimberley Twiner has been teaching and facilitating clown work for about five years now. She is a founding member of The Melbourne Community Clown Troupe along with Liz Skitch (deBase Productions), has taught youth clown for the National Institute of Circus Arts, Westside Circus, Gaggle (comedy training for female identifying folk), and teaches regularly at Clown O’clock (Circus Oz) as well as independently. Kimberley has also co-devised and directed two award winning shows strongly grounded in clown: The Travelling Sisters (QLD) and Maggot (NZ).
