The art of the clown*

Discover your own sense of humour, with curiosity in your luggage and immerse yourself in absurd and irritating moments. Just be, let yourself drift in the moment and resonate with what is in the air.

Silence – breath – your own pulse – becoming a leaf, carried by the wind, a planet or a molecule of air. Transform yourself into a stone, a ring or …. Becoming something and experiencing being everything – a real treat! It broadens your horizons and imagination, gives you a new perspective on the world, boosts your self-esteem and conveys compassion.

The figure work is combined with the basics of acting, Butoh as an expression and the philosophy of the clown*: Sharpening the senses, taking oneself seriously, remaining authentic and pausing every now and then. Having fun when we stumble, getting up again and doing what we normally forbid ourselves to do, even without language. Discover the comedy in tragedy, conjure up stories from the hidden and make them visible.

Everyone brings their own talents and idiosyncrasies and expresses them through their own humour. Exaggeration and alienation, cause and effect bring unintentional comedy. And at the same time: concentration on the essentials, hope, strong feelings, courage to act, alert senses…

The tragic-comic clown* loves the world, notices everything, is non-judgemental and looks at the world from his very own perspective.
