Clown: Play and Presence with Frank Wurzinger

Clown: Play and Presence with Frank Wurzinger

'Every human being is a clown but only a few have the courage to show it' - Charlie Rivel.

This new course at the Jersey Arts Centre is open to anyone interested in performance and theatre-making. The three day course offers the chance to work with Frank Wurzinger - theatre-maker, workshop leader, actor, director and modern clown.

Clowns may be simple and truthful or outrageously and joyfully over the top. Through a series of movement exercises and games, you will be liberated from your inhibitions to find the freedom to be yourself and play with anything. You'll explore the edge of what is acceptable and find out how individuals make people laugh. When does comedy become tragedy? Routines will be devised which will be shared with an invited audience at the end of the course.

When: Saturday 7th to Monday 9th April

Where: Jersey Arts Centre

Time: 11am to 4pm daily

Tutor: Frank Wurzinger

Suitable for 16+ years
