Whatever the culture of the clown, the spirit of the clown is essentially the same. The clown creates order through disorder; the clown is the maestro of mistakes; the clown turns the world upside down and renews our vision.
Enjoy an introduction to the philosophy of different kinds of clowning. Try a dab of clown make-up. Shift perspective and discover the lift of laughter and improvisational fun. Discover the potential healing of the clown. No experience necessary.
