Grounded like a Clown | half-day workshop | Flock Festival

As improvisers, I believe we all wish to feel grounded on stage. Meaning that we trust the process more than we stress, that we let our characters make the choices without being too much in our own heads, to see what’s already there without constantly searching for something new. And most importantly: leaving space and room for joy and playfulness on stage!

Finding your character and finding ways to let it stick can be one of many ways to ground yourself on stage.

In this workshop you will try different exercises that’ve been collected over the years with its main focus on tools that will make you more grounded on stage. Several of these come from clowning. As an improviser who has experience in clowning, I’ve found that exercises from clowning are a very fun, useful and powerful way to find and create characters. To strap things down to its bare minimum one can often experience that what one has is enough, and that there are plenty of things to play with! In addition to clowning there will be exercises from character work and warm up exercises. Together they will help you get ready to enjoy and play.

Because in my opinion, we as improvisers are often doing more than enough! What it’s often more about is letting ourselves trust the process, find our character, see and listen to our fellow players. And last, but not least: have fun!

This workshop is suited for all improvisers, whether you are new to the game or experienced.
