Kiki Lovechild's Clown Workshop

Kiki Lovechild's Clown Workshop
Clown Workshop: The Beauty of Mistakes

The growth of the modern clown movement in the last ten years has shown no signs of slowing down, as actors, comedians, directors and all types of performers realise the huge benefits of using aspects of theatre clowning in their own creative work.

Participants at this workshop will be introduced to the underlying principles of theatre clowning and learn how to translate these principles to their existing work, as well as being a good starting point for anyone looking to explore clown further.
How do you respond when something goes wrong? How do you deal with performing in environments you are uncomfortable in? How can you cope with unexpected situations that arise mid performance? How do you ensure you engage the crowd when you are “not feeling it today”?
This workshop will look at how can you turn a mistake or unplanned event into something magical for the audience. It covers a series of tried and tested clown exercises that have transferable skills for all performance disciplines, while tapping into your inner clown.
The concepts covered will assist those who often find themselves in challenging performance situations – as all artists do – and empower them to turn unexpected and unplanned events into beautiful pieces of entertainment.
Clowning is a powerful tool. With the clown’s mindset, you can approach situations that you may normally find uncomfortable with joy and enthusiasm. Students of clowning often find themselves saying “I had no idea I could that” and it is this phenomena that this workshop taps into.
It’s also going to be a lot of fun, and teaching through a series of games means you will leave with a collection of tools and exercises that you can practice on your own long after the workshop has finished.
