WHEN: Mondays 7:30-9:30

COST: $10/session

For anyone who has gone through any clown training this is a way to continue the practice on a weekly basis and a means to develop your clown/audience relationship. All levels are welcome.

“How do you find your clown? By following this saying to the letter: ‘When laughter breaks out, the clown isn’t far away. When laughter dies down, the clown goes away. Where is my clown? He is born in laughter, lives near laughter and dies beside laughter. With this work people have to find a way of being beautiful and surprising… and by beautiful I mean being in the grip of pleasure or freedom.” -Philippe Gaulier

Hogtown Clown strives to be affordable and accessible. If you want to attend but can not afford to do so, please email john@johnbeale.net
