3 Day Clowning Course with Fraser Hooper: 5th - 7th July.

Exercise those funny bones with award winning funny man Fraser Hooper. 

 

Through improvisation, rhythm and play participants will discover the joys of seriously clowning around in a practical workshop that shows you how to build material into comic routines. Topics covered will include working the audience, developing style, directing and object theatre. Clowns on film will provide an additional feature to the class.

 

Fraser Hooper has taught clown in over twenty countries and was for twelve years the resident clown tutor at The National Institute for Circus in London. Now resident in New Zealand he juggles his year performing and teaching around the world. He concentrates on rhythm and play and specialises in teaching effective methods of how to give great feedback.

 

“Fraser delivers clearly and with much joy, the principles and practices that make his own work as a clown so brilliant. I came away with solid tools for creation and performance that will have a positive impact on my own work for years to come."

Pete Sweet USA

 

“I learnt more about stage craft in his workshop than I'd learnt in years of training, Fraser Hooper is brilliant.”

What is your way into (and way out of) creation? How do you transition from your daily life to your creative state, and back? What practices do you use to calm your nerves pre-performance? How do you access your flow, and how do you navigate its depths? 

 

In this two-day intensive workshop you will discover how meditation can become an invaluable tool for performance creation, rehearsal, and devising processes. You will learn how to apply the power of thresholds and visualisation to your existing practice, how to access your most productive creative flow, calm your nervous system and regulate the amount of creative energy at your disposal. 

 

Tessa and Viola will guide you through a series of meditation and embodiment practices that can support and enhance your creative output. By the end of the two days, you will have a set of tools to combine and personalise to help you access your best creative self, and make sure not to exhaust your creative juices in the process!

 

The workshop is open to all skill levels, and to any type of performing artists: circus performers, actors, dancers, performance artists...all are welcome! Bring comfortable clothes you can move in and pen and paper. Participants will receive worksheets and handouts for future reference, as well as a free short meditation recording.

 

Day 1:

Getting in and out of the creative zone, and how to stay safe within it

Visualisation & meditation as devising tools

 

Day 2:

Application of the tools on your personal practice (with equipment / props if part of your practice)
