Masterclass The Beauty of Mistakes: A Clown Workshop for Burlesque and Cabaret Performers with Kiki Lovechild (Jack Stark).

ENG

How can you cope with unexpected situations that arise mid performance?
How do you respond when something goes wrong?
How do you ensure you engage the crowd when you are “not feeling it today”?

Improve your performance skills with the underlying principles of theatre clowning.
This workshop will look at how you can turn a mistake or unplanned event into something magical for the audience. It uses a series of tried and tested clown exercises that have transferable skills for all performance disciplines, while tapping into your inner clown.

Clowning is a powerful tool. With the clown’s mindset, you can approach situations that you may normally find uncomfortable with joy and enthusiasm. Students of clowning often find themselves saying “I had no idea I could that” and it is this phenomena that this workshop taps into. The concepts covered will assist those who often find themselves in challenging performance situations – as all artists do – and empower them to turn unexpected and unplanned events into beautiful pieces of entertainment.

A very enjoyable and fun workshop suitable for all types of performers (actors, burlesque dancers, comedians, musicians…).
Kiki will be teaching through a series of games and let you leave with a collection of tools and exercises that you can practice on your own long after the workshop has finished.
