Join Filament and UHeights for the final 2019 edition of DARK: on mondays! 

  ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP Clown has a unique poetic potential because it allows the performer to explore and play joining the naiveté and the vulnerability of the child, with the rigor and the technique of the adult, thus revealing the poetry of the ridiculous. In this workshop we will just scratch the surface of this challenging and rewarding work with some games and clown improvisations. Come out and see what's so funny!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR Tom Spangenberg (he/him) has been studying clown and devising/performing original clown shows for 10+ years, training with Giovanni Fusetti, Aitor Baisuri, Sue Morrison, Jane Nichols, and George Lewis - among others. Clowning creidts include: the acclaimed short 'Banquet', 'The Adventures of Rocketman and Beano', and the clown version of 'The Iliad' at Shakespeare and Company.
