The wisdom of the clown in Italy

April 27 - May 4

A retreat for human and clown
A week to land, a week to sing and play and give it all. This is a place where you can experiment and re-invent your clown. Singing and creating music in combination with clowning gets a big focus in this week.
Do you need to be able to sing for this course? No, there is no need for that. Just love that expression ‘to sing as if nobody is watching’. So going for it is a big invitation to you.

The Silence day is a popular day in this week which fits well in a place like this. Where we can get to know our clowns in a new and quiet/introspective way. A reflection day which is in the middle of the week.

Theme for this year is Clown family

  • Clown family ‘performances’
  • Clown family ‘concerts’
  • Happy, sad, wild, musical, punk, stiff, tramp -families
  • Small / big families.
  • Reunions  crashes weddings funerals
  • All generation clowning

This amazing location has grown into a home for me and my family, and people come back here several times over the years. It’s at a great monastery, run by a group of nuns who love that we come each year. And they for sure do their best to make it a perfect retreat for human and clown. Their food is dangerously good.
After returning there several years, we have grown some nice traditions: like singing for nuns and a small ‘performance’ for the neighborhood fans. It’s a very spontaneous happening and they just love it.
We are free to work/play at all locations, making us welcome to each year explore new places in their beautiful garden.
