Playing, Listening, Clowning - Workshop I LEVEL

I LEVEL - Intensive Workshop

 

What is Clown? What does Clown attract us? And what do you expect from a Clown?

Description

There are many ways to get closer to the Clown, this path intends to face the smallest mask of universes, not as a character but as a process. There is a place where everything seems possible and this is the inner place where one's own Clown lives, a magical place where mind, body and heart live a relationship free of structures. I fall in love every time I find myself in this place. The course suggests a path towards this place; it is a free place where the rules exist, but where it is not always the right thing to respect them.
It is a work that requires mental, physical and emotional honesty, a work that needs practice and presence. The proposed training is suitable for anyone: actors, dancers, performers, clowns or others. It addresses three great areas: physical, emotional and mental. Each evening includes a first part of training and a second part of improvisation guided clown. To anyone who wants to take part in this workshop, I advise not to be in a hurry and to set out on the way towards the own clown in the same way one embarks on a spiritual journey.
I'm not interested in making people laugh, I'm passionate about the human being, his functioning, his problems, his brain, his abilities, his limits, his emotions; more generally we can sum up by saying: his dynamics. All this is very funny, but often we don't see it.

The main theme of the seminar will be metamorphosis: a basic element of creation in the arts in general, but especially for the Clown.  Will be explored the The Clown Dynamic.

 

The course includes: physical training, meditations, improvisations, tears and smiles.

 

 

BioClown

I chose the Clown because it makes me feel good, I chose Berlin because it makes me feel good, I teach because it makes me feel good. We are always looking for something that makes us feel good, we don't always succeed. I'm lucky to have met my teachers and I thank them for everything they left me. Thanks to Pietra, Burkhard, Mauro, Claude, Philip, Jango, Peter, Raffaella, Danio, Michela, Antonio, Hajo, Carlo, Paolo, Federica, Aldo, but above all Philippe, the masters I take with me when I teach because they have left me something special.
I am 43 years old, I have been doing this job for 25 years, I have done theatre, dance, cinema, direction, theatre-dance, theatre-dance at the clown's borders, clown and there are still a lot of things I would like to do.
I have yet to learn how to write my own biography.
