Clowning is a state of openness that allows us to experience a child-like, naive and vulnerable state of being. Paradoxically we grow, learn and are strengthened through playfully reconnecting with what makes us most vulnerable. This approach to clowning is not a technique (no tricks, gags, or routines) but is a personal journey towards finding one's unique way of being clown by listening and becoming receptive, two essential skills to develop in support of any creative form of expression. This “playshop” is about liberating ourselves from the "shoulds" and "should-nots" that constrain our natural capacity to be authentic, playful, trusting and uniquely creative.
