Clown Lab – Amadan & Lyric Theatre – 19 Jan to 9 Mar

Clown Lab is Amadan’s regular 8-week training programme giving participants the opportunity to explore their inner clown. Clown personifies happiness & optimism; they meet every catastrophe with a smile & are delighted in the face of every flop.

Led by Gemma Mae Halligan & Jude Quinn, combining their extensive experience in Clown and devised theatre, every session will begin with a short physical meditation to prepare ourbodies & minds before using games & exercises to explore your Clown. We will focus on –

  • Play – letting your mind run free into true spontaneity & creativity
  • Resilience & Confidence – being able to remain optimistic & joyful amidst certain disaster
  • Complicité & Receptivity – being open to the audience & any unforeseen occurrence
  • The Uniqueness of You – discover what is uniquely funny & special about you

This programme will build your confidence in front of an audience & help you accept confusion & spontaneity with grace.

Clown Lab is open to all arts practitioners irrespective of their discipline as well as those outside the arts industry. We will also use costume to help realise your unique clown.

Please be aware that this workshop will be online and so it would be good if you were able to have somewhere you could work uninterrupted and with enough space for you to move
around comfortably.

There are only 15 spaces available so booking early is advised.

Dates: 19th January – 9th March 2022
Time: 7:00pm – 9:30pm
