Clowning around with Le Navet Bete

Published February 25, 2016

Over February half term, we partnered with internationally acclaimed physical theatre company Le Navet Bete and Devon Young Carers to deliver an intensive week long course on clowning to a group of enthusiastic 13 – 19 year olds.

After a week mastering the art of stupidity and learning the very best techniques of being ridiculous, the participants presented their self-devised physical comedy performance to an eager audience of friends, family and support workers… to great acclaim!

‘My daughter gained an awful lot from the experience and thoroughly enjoyed her four days. You and the guys put in a lot of hard work and it is really appreciated. It was a fabulous opportunity for these young carers.’

‘Absolutely Brilliant! …hoping there will be another workshop next year. My only complaint is there should have been chocolate cake for the audience! We loved the show.’ 

‘My son has thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and opportunities during the 4 days, he got great feedback from the group leaders which has really increased his confidence. It was good to see a youth performance where so much was achieved and all participants given a chance to shine! Well Done!’
