Who is a clown? Someone who makes you laugh. And why? Because a clown is innocent, fragile, free and fearless just like you are somewhere inside you. Explore your inner clown with Monia Baldini

We were all children once but do we remember? Do you remember how you use to play when you were a child? How free you were to play and how free you were to imagine? Children find games everywhere, the all world is a game.

This workshop is aimed for beginners and absolutely no previous experience is necessary.

A clown is like a child, we all have a clown inside we just need to wake them up. Are you ready to wake up yours?

In this evening workshop we are going to

• try clowning structures together and with each other.

• practise clowning skills for bring people together

• develop the sensitivity of the clown

• laugh, a lot (and maybe even cry)

After the workshop, your new clown presence and awareness will help you to communicate better with others. And maybe you will find more games in your everyday world too.
