Clown Congress

29 October, 2023 @ 19:30 21:30 CET

What I propose is a mini event where we find a way from our wild lost brains and our feelings to a state of being with our clown where there is a strong deep connection towards ourselves, with
our clown partner and with each other.

Some arrive here through the individual work, others through the deep partner connection and many through the sense of being in community.

I am so very aware that clowning is such an individual art.

When we truly get back “home” and rooted in ourselves we can give and give big and generously with clear and clean intentions.

This mini workshop will be a mix of physical work and voice work.

Letting our clown be the whole of us; the all-inclusive us, including of our vulnerability and fear.

So here we make space for the human inside us. A perfect mix of you the actor- clown – human.

Connect with you you are and what your clown identity is.

Connect and refill the human and the clown, embrace the process so you can hopefully repeat this again and again. And share your playfulness with the world.

Celebrate your uniqueness, in the most expansive way encompassing your colour, gender, religion, culture and beyond.

I would love to meet your there online! – Patrick

About Patrick van den Boom
Clowning is in my bloodstream. It was a wish to be a clown since I two years old. Sometimes it is clear from the start! I am very happy that I managed to make my profession out of my passion. It means a lot to me and I see it as a luxurious position. After a period of theater and dance I decided at the end of the nineties to go to a Dutch Clown School. This was the start of a lot of clowning! I started clowning in hospitals, elderly homes and also became a teacher/trainer.

In 2009 I moved from the Netherlands to Norway. There I started working at the Sykehusklovnene (hospital clowns) in Oslo. And I have started up the new group for clowning in elderly houses in Norway; Klokkeklovnene. Here we clown for people in dementia care.

And the Dutch Clownschool I had in the Netherlands, became Clownschool International! Now I give training and workshops all around Europe. To be honest, I feel like a lucky bastard to inspire others. It makes me very happy.
