Man only plays when he is, in the fullest sense of the word a human being, and he is only fully human when he plays.”     -Friedrich Schiller

The truth is, our plans, our duties and our reasons get in the way… we no longer easily find our innate human capacity to play.

Drawing from games and exercises used in theatrical clowning, this class aims to lightly awaken the presence and spontaneity needed to loosen up, creating authentic states of playfulness.

Come - throw off your work-a-day backpack, dip your toe into the pool of abandon and begin to feel the transformative power of play. Treat yourself to fresh discovery, joy and connection with others in a stress free day of pure fun and games. 

"Play energizes us and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities."  

- Stuart Brown, Psychiatrist

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”

What Folks are saying about Berkcirque's clowning workshops:

 

“For me there are far too few places to reconnect to freedom in a way that is safe and explorative. If this all resonates with you then Laura Geilen's clowning class is for you! I am very grateful for the space Laura has let be born for play to happen. I made new friends and though this was my first time clowning, I have already signed up to clown again. Come clown!"

–L.P. Great Barrington

 “A totally different (fun!) spin on peeling off those layers and finding authenticity. It felt healing and a big help in the pursuit of wholeness”.

 –A.W. Shelfield, MA

 “I'm still feeling light after yesterday's wonderful workshop - what luck to have found your work and such a great group of people to play with. I definitely want to be part of the monthly workshops or playgroup. The first Saturday of the month at BerkCirque? I've already written it into my calender for the next 6 months.”

 –K.G. Northampton, MA

 “I fell in love with creativity a little more during your workshop.  I couldn't ask for a better love on Valentines day”. –
