Zoom Clown 1 - Clown Play: April 2021
Cultivate more play, connection and spontaneity with this series of 4 weekly 2-hour interactive clowning sessions on Zoom.
This 4-week introductory course is designed for adults at all stages of their clown journeys, from beginners to pros. The Online Clown Academy invites you to drop into the open, curious state of clown and discover playful connection, from your zoom windows across the globe.
"From the comfort of your own home, you will be taken on a grounding and exhilarating journey towards the magic that is your own creative, playful, idiotic self." Previous participant
Each week, you'll be invited to tune into your body through a short guided meditation, before jumping into facilitated playful movement explorations designed to help you release tension and discover new ways of expressing yourself through your physicality. Then, through a series of simple tasks, you'll encounter your living space and it's familiar objects with fresh eyes and a playful heart. There'll be opportunities galore to connect and play with and for other clowns in fun and surprising ways. Plenty of laughter guaranteed!
"A mad romp through your own flat that helps you to become more comfortable being ridiculously silly in your own space with a group of highly enjoyable fools." Previous participant
Zoom Clown 1 Clown Play is brought to you by The Online Clown Academy (previously Clown Workouts), which is headed up by professional idiots Robyn Hambrook and Holly Stoppit. Robyn and Holly will be co-facilitating each session, drawing on their vast experience and combined backgrounds in theatre clowning (both), rebel clowning (Robyn) and therapeutic clowning (Holly), to take you on a journey into stupidity and beyond!
Holly and Robyn have run this course 11 times since May 2020 and are thrilled to unleash it on a brand new batch of idiots!
