Clown Lab is Amadan’s regular 8-week training programme giving participants the opportunity to explore their inner clown. Clown personifies happiness & optimism; they meet every catastrophe with a smile & are delighted in the face of every flop.
Led by Gemma Mae Halligan & Jude Quinn, combining their extensive experience in Clown and devised theatre, every session will begin with a short physical meditation to prepare our bodies & minds before using games & exercises to explore your Clown.
We will focus on –
Play - letting your mind run free into true spontaneity & creativity
Resilience & Confidence – being able to remain optimistic & joyful amidst certain disaster
Complicité & Receptivity - being open to the audience & any unforeseen occurrence
The Uniqueness of You - discover what is uniquely funny & special about you
This programme will build your confidence in front of an audience & help you accept confusion & spontaneity with grace.
Clown Lab is open to all arts practitioners irrespective of their discipline as well as those outside the arts industry. 18yrs +
DATES - every Wed from19th Jan to 9th Mar 2022, 7pm-9.30pm @ the Amdan studio in the Vault Artist Sudios, Belfast.
