2pm - 5pm
How do we write funny with our bodies? What is the key to creating laughter? Explore these questions in this physically engaging session. Time to extend your performance skills.
Navigate comedy through the perspective of the clown – the ultimate physical performer. Work with mime, gestures, double takes, failure, solo/partner work, rhythm, reactions and timing. Create a context and make short funny pieces using physical games and activities.
Suitable for actors, comedians, poets, dancers and those who want some space to extend their physical repertoire.
