Clown Play, Practice and Performance


Clown Play, Practice and Performance with Marya Folinsbee  

6 Classes: Feb. 6 – Mar. 13
Wednesdays 
6pm – 8.30pm

Course Description:
The clown is a universal archetypal character, channeling trickster taboos and the provocative divine! In this class we will tap into our clown personas in order to develop “turns”, or short clown performances. Activities include improvisational theatre and movement, costume and make-up creation, story-telling/story-building, and wild self-exploration. No previous experience necessary, but those with experience very welcome too! This work supports performers, artists, parents, and anyone plagued by seriousness.

Course Fee: $185     Material Fee:  $15

TOTAL FEE: $200

Meet Your Clown!

This class goes for 8 weeks, every Tuesday from 6-8pm at the Oxygen Arts Centre. We begin on October 2nd. It is a friendly, playful intro to clown theatre & play, with something for anyone interested in developing their clown skills.

The clown is an ancient, archetypal character, channeling trickster taboos and the provocative divine! In this class we will tap into the clown energies in all of us through play, movement and story. Activities include improvisational theatre and movement, mask, costume and make-up creation, meditation, story-telling/story-building, and wild self-exploration. No theatre experience necessary. This work supports performers, artists, parents, and anyone plagued by seriousness. Reject your preconceptions about clowns! This will be weirder.

The Work that Reconnects

The Work that Reconnects

In collaboration with k.linda kivi and Gabriel Keczan, I will be facilitating a one-day workshop at the Vallican Whole on November 18th.  There is an info-night on Friday the 17th for people who want to learn more, generally, about the Work, and then all day Saturday we will gather for a deeper process.

The Work that Reconnects is a philosophy and process that helps us be in touch with all of the complexity at this tumultuous moment in time - what Joanna Macy calls "The Great Turning". We will use games, exercises and stories to explore our place in deep time and our power to live with intention in this fraught moment. This work/play can bring up big feelings! Grief, praise, numbness, awe, gratitude, deep sorrow, wonder, insignificance, ancestral memory, presence - it's all good.
This workshop inspired by Joanna Macy (deep ecologist activist), among other teachers.
