Clowning and the 5 Senses

This Year’s Adelaide Comedy Award Winner, comedian and theatre maker Elf Lyons leads a high intensity, fun and pro-active workshop for artists who want to push themselves.

Using a combination of clown, bouffon, puppetry, mime and devising exercises Elf has developed and refined over her years of teaching, Elf will guide you on how to use the five senses to create multi-sensory, memorable, immersive experiences between yourself and your audience.

Suitable for artists of all creative and performance disciplines: dance, theatre, comedy, live art and cabaret. This course is perfect for experienced performers who are keen to take their work to the next level and push themselves creatively.

Elf Lyons is an award winning theatre practitioner and clown teacher who has toured and taught clown all around the world. She is the teacher of the London Soho Theatre’s Comedy Labs + Course.
