Here and Now,
(an intensive improvisation and deepening on clown technique Workshop by Lila Monti)
The clown world elapses on the present, it’s a constant passage through here and now, even on a sketch or routine a clown must be on the watch, receptive and available to what’s going on at the moment and space where he or she is.
The seminar proposal is to develop listening on the present, to train the transportation of different stimuli received by the clown into action, to built games and make them grow through that perception and the dialogue with himself or herself with the partner and with the audience.
To deepen and develop the clown technique emphasizing on:
.Contact with the public, the clown’s own emotions and the here and now.
.Listening to the partners.
.Development of imagination and game.
.Transformation of impulses into action.
.Projection, availability and stage presence.
.Improvisation from assignments. (solo, duo and trio)
.Passage through fragility, failure and exposition.
