Pedro Fabiao – Online: new habitat for the Clown?

Mixing a practical workshop with an interactive conference

Duration: 2 hours

Attendees: 50 max

Price: 10 euro’s

Goals of this interactive workshop

  • learn from your own experience
  • explore the fundamentals of clowning with guided interactions in duos/bigger groups
  • clarify ideas, expand your awareness/knowledge about clowning and how to take it online
  • work with what you bring: “reacting” rather than “acting”
  • identify the main technical changes we need to be aware of and train when working online
  • stay in total presence, a state of discovery and surprise leading to real transformation

In the past couple of decades, clowning started to occuppy and explore new areas like hospitals, elderly care homes, prisons, war scenarios and even funerals, turning these into their new habitats. So why not the digital world? With this sense of adventure, we will revisit what makes sure we remain clowns in there, staying curious and alive.

This will be a learning experience through some basics of Clown and Clown Play adapted to the online experience.
I compare it to humans trying to live on Mars. It’s not at all our natural landscape, but suddenly there’s the need of exploring this new “adverse” environment, that we were not made for. We represent human connection, we work with our bodies and with an energy exchange with an audience. We used to see screens as distant, or even contrary to that. And now, here we are.
Like everything in the clown world, it may sometimes result in disaster, but hopefully at times it will also be glorious!

Make sure you have:
• space to play and stand up
• enough light so that we see you well (test it)
• stable internet access
• your clown nose (if your clowns uses it)
• the meeting link and password (this will be send by the teacher)

I’m really looking forward to this adventure with you.
