Clown Coaching - a day for your Clown
If you need or desire guidance on your Clown, you can come and spend the day at Cal Clown and we will work on it together via various exercises. At the end you will have received a complete orientation and aid on the state of your Clown’s evolution and on what to do next to help it grow, and what type of numbers would be advisable.
"When I came to Cal Clown I had a desire to overcome my fears of playing with and for an audience and found difficulties in creating my own clown numbers.
Clara turned out to be an excellent coach in overcoming these fears and difficulties.
Her approach was very personalised and made us understand and value our own strength and possibilities.
In her teachings, besides guiding us into the right state of mind and openness she gave us tools and lots of personalised material to use for performance. The focus being on this rather than merely on clowning techniques or exercises, combined with the different performances we prepared for healthcare facilities, the streets and a local bar, the course really empowered us to put our first baby steps in the world as clown performers.
For those already performing or those in the process of finding their own power as a performer, I think Clara can be the perfect director or guide (or midwife haha). She knew how to accompany me towards more daring, more craziness, more foolishness and more confidence in my own clown.
Clara has many passionate insights to share about the clown as an art form but also guided us to the most powerful teaching of all: the interaction with an audience.
Being surrounded by nature, animals, plants and near a beautiful river was the perfect setting for me, offering regeneration, healing and inspiration. Not to mention wild, edible and medicinal plants!"
