Categories: Learning, education.

How to define a clown? There are as many definitions as clowns. The Italian director Federico Fellini’s film “The clowns are the aristocrats of the actors.” Yes, the clowns are actors, but unlike them, do not build a character, but have the courage to put their humanity on stage.

The clown uses our emotions, fears, strengths, weaknesses … The clown is not built, is released. We’ve all been children and we wanted to be center of attention simply saying a phrase or playing happy. And it’s about the game where the clown grows, though he does not have age.

The clown is like Educa Games: 0 to 99 years. It is in the game where the clown develops and can achieve the quality that makes it unique and unrepeatable, able to laugh and excite, to create the hilarious absurdity or the tenderest poetry, make us dream showing us the reality of character his humanity. We all have a clown inside and we just have to let it out.

The course:

  • During the game, rhythm and listening, important to go releasing our clown and enter the building steps gags work. It will work with objects, using them as tools to get our imagination. individual and collective work, solos, duos and trios will be made. In the collective work will be played with the different types of classic clown: the august, the contraaugusto and white face. You will also learn to be slapped and fall, reminding some classic circus tickets. The intention is that when we finish the work everyone gets connected and know your clown.
