 An Intro to Red Nose Clowning

with Laura Geilen of Nose to Nose of North America

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

How can we feel some lightness and connection with others when life is hard and we feel so challenged?

How can we find courage when we may be feeling unworthy or vulnerable?

How can we learn to accept - even celebrate! - our unique forms of inadequacy?

We can look to the clown.

With the help of the tiny red mask, clowning is a state of possibility. It invites us to stand in the world in new and refreshing ways.

This workshop is not about tricks, gags, and routines. It’s about learning from what we meet when we slow down and listen to what’s most present. What’s important is not “getting it right” or being clever, but rather the magic of being surprised by what reveals itself when all else falls away.

Through games and exercises, entrances and exits, self-observation and reflection we will explore what happens when we let go of reason, opening to the unknown, the illogical, and the absurd.

Bring just your self, your lunch and your open heart*.

*Caution: Clowning may be habit forming. Side effects may include joy, self-discovery, liberation and laughter.
