Foolish Freedom: An Intro to Clown
with CB Goodman
only 4 seats left
Get out of your head and into your ridiculous in this 2-day clown intensive where we learn how to embrace failure, share vulnerability, take big risks, live and respond in the moment, and connect with the audience, all the while laughing till our face hurts. We will investigate entrances and exits, solo and ensemble work, the power of costumes and props, and the joyous freedom that comes when we play the fool.
This class is for folks of all experience levels who are ready to take their comedic practice to the next level in a supportive and creative environment.
