On 23 and 24 March Carlo Jacucci will teach this two-day intensive Clown Workshop, where performers from all disciplines, novices, people with diverse backgrounds will learn how clowns work to discover their own unique talents, create together and write their shows, with a teacher who has an extensive experience in teaching performers from all over the world.
This is a workshop about laughter and being funny. Not so much with conventional gags and routines – though we will touch on some of these – but more so with anything special, silly, foolish and free that is especially unique to you. This workshop is also about failing, and not hiding it. It is about overcoming the fear of derision, and discovering the pleasure of making people laugh through silliness; learning to be funny by chance; learning to treasure some of the most nonsensical, surprising and absurd performance ideas.
In this workshop you will practise different relationships between clowns, and discover how to exploit conflicts: how you can play with problems and use them as a fabric for creation, and how to cherish mistakes: how to search for good errors, make them shine and build a scene around them, and the variety of faults, flaws, missteps, goofs, slip-ups, bungles, lapses, oversights, slights, stumbles, glitches, misunderstandings, misjudgements, miscues, trespasses, gaffes, and transforming them into triumphs or catastrophes.
Carlo Jacucci is the clown of ‘Vitamin The Show’ (www.VitaminTheatre.com), with which he toured the world with much appreciation from audiences and the press. Carlo runs a range of theatre workshops after having taught internationally in several institutions and worked with many theatre groups, including Dance Base Edinburgh, the Cork School of Music, Dance House Dublin, the International Festival of Contemporary Circus Cirkuliacija in Kaunas Lithuania, International Circus School Fredrikstad Norway, the Théâtre de l'Opprimé of Paris in France, Italy and Burundi, the Volterra Theatre Festival, the Arches Theatre in Glasgow, and at École Philippe Gaulier in Paris since 2011.
