PHYSICAL COMEDY FOR THE PUPPETEER, ACTOR, CLOWN, DANCER
 

This class is designed to expand your physical vocabulary and to develop your comic sensibilities and personal point of view so that you can use this visceral knowledge in your work as a performer. I am primarily a Clown and an Actress who uses puppets and objects in my work.  My unique understanding of physical comedy from the point of view of the Theatrical Clown can be extremely useful to performing artists of all genres from puppeteers to animators to classical actors.  We will explore the technique and use of slapstick, improvisation, partnership, comic timing, escalations and accidents in solo, duo and group exercises.  We will develop tools to use in playing comedy from the clown point of view playing improvisational games and exploring the basic relationships between the performer and the audience, between two or three performers and within a group. The exercises are designed to discover a true sense of pleasure and joy in play and explores the wide range of passions and expressiveness within us, from the ridiculous to the grotesque to the innocent, thus allowing us more freedom to access the many colors of our expressive selves.
