L370: PERFORMANCE TECHNIQUES
Clown breaks the fourth wall and students learn how to encounter the audience in a direct way.
Through exercises, we will discover their ability to have fun on stage, to go beyond their controlled self and tease out their crazy side. Then we will slowly find out where your clown is.
The clown is a version of ourselves that is vulnerable, ultimately stupid and ridiculous.
It is the ability for the student to:
- be in the moment
- feel the waves that exists between an audience and themselves
- allow the unknown to be part of the performance
An artist who understands improvisation, allows herself to be transparent and accessible, and who is vulnerable is a better performer.
