ClownLAB – 18 and 19 Feb

Clown Lab is Amadan Ensemble’s regular 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 our bodies & 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.

This iteration of ClownLAB will be a two day workshop from 10am – 5pm. Although we had some brilliant experiences hosting this workshop over Zoom the past year, we are really looking forward to it being in person and can’t wait to see you all there!

Venue: Lyric Theatre, 55 Ridgeway St, Belfast BT9 5FB
Date: 18th Feb – 19th Feb
Time: 10am – 5pm
Cost: $85
