PRESENCE AND VULNERABILITY THROUGH CLOWN
introduction to clown

"We are a river that is no longer the same as before, we will sit on its shores to see it change, to recognize it in its unpredictable dances, first the feet will enter and we will walk with our originality until we lose support and have nothing more that our breathing. With witnesses who will be accomplices, springboards to new adventures, there in the center of the river we will feel the currents that cross us and in an act of courage I let you look and in a fit of mischief I will dare to start the alchemy that suddenly transforms a personal experience into a universal act, the everyday mythology that makes us heroes, those who with honor and dignity almost always lose. "

Andrés Fagiolino

WORKSHOP PROPOSAL

For a clown the problems are play material, an obstacle becomes a springboard, a stumble is the possibility of a new game, a glance opens a new world. When working the clown we will be working the need to allow us to miss, to not understand, to accept our ridiculous. We will be using dynamics, games and tools extracted from the training and technique of the theatrical clown with the aim of working on the development of the intuition, the conscience of the body as a channel of expression and communication, the construction of dialogue through listening to the present moment, the projection of emotions and the availability to play individually and collectively, learning giving and receiveing to find ourselves with our own essence.

 

This workshop is aimed at actors, dancers, circus and street artists, health professionals, educators, sociologists, people who work with groups and all those who wish to go through this initiatory journey that proposes to know and accept us, to go to thencounter of others, play and let us transform ... It can come very well for those who practice disciplines with a high degree of demand.

WORK STAGES

We will begin breathing towards the base, we will register the center and awaken the physical, emotional and mental bodies.

 

Then we will look up to find others and recognize ourselves in them.

 

We will play to awaken our mischief, presence, state of urgency, creativity and to become friends of the mistake.

 

Finally, through dynamics of maximum sensitivity each participant will approach a genuine state of openness and vulnerability.

WORKING TIME

The workshop is carried out in a process of four days of three hours each day or two days of seven hours each day, being flexible to the needs of each group. We aim to ensure that work is not only during the three hours of each day, but that it continues in the daily routine, be attentive, awake to the fact that each moment can be a signal for work.
