Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development. Throughout this workshop the rules of clown emerge giving participants a fundamental understanding of clown, and a deeper awareness of their own performance and creation skills.

À l'aide d'exercices d'improvisation et de mouvements donnés, votre corps vous permettra de découvrir le clown qui fait partie de vous et vous ouvrira les portes de votre imagination pour créer des histoires et des personnages insoupçonnés. À partir des règles et éléments fondamentaux du clown qui émergeront lors de cette introduction au genre, vous arriverez à mieux cibler et utiliser vos aptitudes créatives et aurez une meilleure connaissance de votre jeu.
