This fun workshop is for all levels of improvisers to get more comfortable with physicality and playfulness onstage. Clowns generally aren’t big talkers so much of the art of clowning is about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this 6-hour intensive will dive into ways to bridge that gap in your performance. NOTE: There will be a lot of movement in this workshop so please wear clothes you can sweat in and bring water.
