All Will Learn to Wear Bowlers: Pig Iron Clown Workshop in NYC
with Quinn Bauriedel and Geoff Sobelle in New York City
WHEN: Wednesdays (June 10, 17, and 24) 2:30 – 5:30 PM
WHERE: The Brecht Forum 451 West Street
Pig Iron Artistic Director Quinn Bauriedel and Company Member Geoff Sobelle (creator of the international hit all wear bowlers) invite you to join them in an investigation of the world of the clown.
What gets revealed when you stand alone in front of an audience?
What pleasure can be found with the smallest mask in the world?
In what discipline are you the world’s leading expert?
With little else than a red nose and the body that you inherited, the workshop will exploit each participant’s unique sense of humor and way of uncovering the absurdity of being a human being on this planet. Take a leap into the unknown territory of your own lunacy.
