Spymonkey Clown Class in NY (March 10-15, 2011)
A five-day workshop with Aitor Basauri, Spymonkey co founder, clown teacher at the Phillipe Gaulier School, Paris and Cirque Du Soliel, Montreal.
Participants will learn to develop what makes them funny, hone their skills and discover how to make an audience belly laugh whilst being part of a great group dynamic. The performer who dares to stand before a crowd, unafraid to make mistakes and find pleasure in being wonderfully silly will reap fruitful rewards. We strongly believe that it is in this moment that the seed for the best performances can begin.
MARCH 10th – 15th 2011
Thursday through Tuesday (no class on Sat. March 12.)
10am – 5pm with slight variations
Fee – $400 ($350 for early registration before January 15)
Payment to be made through Paypal
