Clown Conservatory Offering 3 5 week intensives (SF)
We’ve featured Joe Dieffenbacher and the Clown Conservatory before. The CLOWN CONSERVATORY at Circus Center San Francisco, is offering a 15 week Clown Intensive in the Winter of 2014-15. The intensive is made up of three separate 5 week intensives. Students can take any individual 5 week workshop, combine any two, or sign up for all three for a comprehensive 15 week course in Clown and Physical Comedy! Application deadline for Winter Intensives is Sep. 20, 2014
If you have any questions about the program, send an email to Clown Conservatory Director Joe Dieffenbacher at [email protected].
The three workshops are as follows: CLOWN: The Physical Comedian – Nov. 3 – Dec. 7, 2014: A 5 week workshop with classes in Clown, Physical Comedy, Movement Studies, Slapstick, Solo & Partner Acrobatics and Improv. We’ll give you the tools to develop professional level performance material for cabaret, theatrical clowning, street theater and circus.
CLOWN: Puppet, Prop, Mask – Jan. 12 – Feb. 15, 2015: A 5 week workshop exploring the common language between Clown and Puppetry. Prop play is essential for good clowning. This workshop will develop your technique as well as your imagination.
CLOWN: The Talking Clown – Feb. 23 – Mar. 29, 2015: This 5 week workshop explores the bridge between Clown and Stand Up Comedy, characters from Commedia dell’arte and the ribald humor of Bouffon.
