In memory of Jackie Moore
who died 31 July 2006

Jackie Moore worked mostly in collaboration with Dr. David McGavin at the Blackthorn Trust Medical Centre in Maidstone where she inspired many to start clowning. She excelled particularly in performance and was already fooling around and jestering well before she trained to teach clowning formally with Nose to Nose. Her perception and understanding of how people relate to each other gave her performances a clarity and truth that people recognized and loved.

Last year, Jackie had started collaborating with Paul MacDonald on an autobiographical one-woman clown show. Below is Dr. David McGavin's address at Jackie Moore's funeral.
