Listen or die
How to fine tune your internal antenna & make your impros look rehearsed.
Level: Intermediate (some clowning experience necessary)
Duration: 2.30 hours
Attendees: 20 max.
Price: 20 euros
Active listening is not a skill we are born with, but without a doubt, it’s worth it’s weight in gold when clowning. Clowns who listen to each other nourish each other’s creativity, they respect each other’s rhythms and support each other’s proposals. They can build on what comes up and create a scene that is both logical, seamless and hilarious. And clowns who listen to their audience know when to expand on a proposal, or shorten it, or completely change tack. They are able to rapidly regenerate an interest in their performance and keep their audience continually entertained.
In this workshop, we’ll look at the reasons you may be failing to listen, the difficulites that prove it, and the ways in which you can uplevel your capacity to sense, accept and play with everything that occurs.
