AN INTRODUCTION TO CLOWNING WITH KRISTIN CROWLEY AND VIVIAN GLADWELLlooking

Encumbered by the expectations of ourselves and of others, how do we find the strength to shake off the limitations and fears that isolate us and prevent us from feeling free? How do we responsibly summon the Courage to Be?

Clowning is a state of playfulness that allows us to experience a child-like, naïve and vulnerable state of being … and paradoxically we learn, grow, and are strengthened through reconnecting playfully with what makes us most vulnerable.

This approach to clowning is not a technique (tricks, gags and routines), but a personal journey towards finding one’s unique way of being – by listening and being receptive, essential skills for any creative and imaginative endeavor. It is only in letting go of control that we begin to be surprised by the depth of that which is around us and within us.

The word “courage” comes from a root that means “heart.” Through clowning and connecting to our naturally playful and creative spirit, we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and in each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves.

This course establishes the foundation for all our work and is an essential first step before going on to more advanced courses such as Social Clowning and the Facilitator’s Training.

It means…visiting the unknown, continually saying yes to life as it happens, being honest and vulnerable, experiencing struggle…
