Intro to Clown with Garry Starr

Two-Day Clown Intensive for Improvisers and Actors.
The clown is forever the optimist and truly comes alive in failure.
In this playful 2 day workshop we will explore how to be funny without even trying. The pressure to make people laugh will be graciously taken out of your hands and we will instead be finding ways to make you look ridiculous so you can hone your skills in listening for laughter and responding accordingly.

Focus:
● Looking to the Laugh
● Repeating the Funny
● Falling in Love with The Flop
● Saving your Mates
● Doing Something vs Doing Nothing
