This fall season, Comedy Clownesque presents Clown School 101 – an online introductory workshop on the art of clowning presented by Sue Proctor.
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 online introduction to the philosophy of different kinds of clowning and try your hand at creating clown characters. Shift perspective and play. Discover the lift of laughter and improvisational fun in this bizarre world. Discover the potential healing of the clown.
Class dates: September 17 – October 22, 2020, Thursday evenings for 6 weeks
Time: 6:30-8:00 pm CST
Cost: $120 for 6 sessions.
