“The clown doesn’t exist apart from the actor who performs him. We are all Clowns. We all think we are smart, beautiful and strong, but all of us have our drawbacks, our foolishness, which having been expressed makes us laugh”.
The Clown makes others laugh, but how?
“The Clown is someone who “accepts his failure”, who ruins his performance placing in that way the spectators in a state of superiority. Through this failure the clown reveals his deep human nature which moves us and makes us laugh”. (Jacques Lecoq)
The course of Clown, based on the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq, invites you to investigate and discover your own clown. 20 class hours in all.
