The clown is a beautiful and poetic creature that comes from deep within our imagination and out into the light to share something super funny and super special with the audience; it is either a triumph of epic proportions or a horrible disaster – both provide us with a wonderful theatrical experience.
The Beautiful Idiot: Pursuing Your Clown
We are in search of your clown – the pursuit of something ridiculous and poetical deep within you – an individual relationship to the comic world and what makes that uniquely funny. The actor will develop their own sense of play through exercises and games, examining the relationship between themselves and the audience, and the other actors on the stage.
The clown provokes the performer into the uncharted waters of the deepest sweetest springs of the soul and uncovers a surprising and astonishing human; willing to be seen as an idiot in front of an audience is what makes the clown the most beautiful and generous of creatures.
Prerequisite: If you have not trained at the Studio or are not currently a student, you are still invited to join the Clown class. Interview is required for actors new to the Studio.
