EMBRACING THE UNEXPECTED – Clown 2
Friday June 30, 2017 - Tuesday July 04, 2017
This course offers further practice of clowning with the focus on structure and relationship. The more demanding aspects of this level come from a need to practice awareness of and responsiveness to your partner on stage, to your audience and to the images, stories and characters that emerge during improvisation.
The teaching method will emphasize finding greater insights into the techniques of improvisation and performance, providing challenges and inspiration enough to take your understanding of this work forward.
The group is limited to 12. Early registration is advised.
Date and times:
JUNE 30 – JULY 4, 2017
9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. each day
9:30 a.m. – 12:30 on final day
Accommodation and meals are not included. You will need to find these online and we are happy to advise you. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Kristin Spaeth Crowley
Kristin did not come to clowning by choice, but was forced into it by wiser others who knew where she belonged. Her work as a clown and facilitator led to the fumbling discovery and recovery of a language she knows inwardly, loves, and could have lost. Her
specialities include weeping, falling in love, making mischief, and the invisible. She is grateful for the inspiration and example of those brilliant, talented generous people she has been privileged to work with or been touched by – artists, musicians, athletes, educators, poets, seekers, thinkers, healers, and other “ordinary” fearful and courageous spirits willing to risk and dare. She is amazed and astonished by her family, her parents and siblings, her children, and those she has claimed unjustly as her own, by those braver than she, facing the ordinary challenges connected with being alive, and by forgiveness. She is interested in presences and possibilities. She is informed by life and living, by beauty, ugliness, music, laughter, poetry, nature, stillness, cruelty, and compassion, by brave souls and tender hearts by the struggle to realize the impulse that initiated a wish to be, and by the work she has to do. The mistakes she makes: the limitations she must overcome, the struggles she faces in being and becoming, the gifts she has been given, and her sense of wonder, reverence, and gratitude inform and guide her in her work with others. She works with individuals, companies, institutions, agencies, and organizations. She still struggles and falls down.
