Hilary Chaplain teaching in NY in Nov (earlybird deadline tomorrow!)
Hilary Chaplain is teaching another physical comedy class in NY. Â If you haven’t studied with her, you should!
This class will explore physical comedy from a clown point of view. Expand your physical vocabulary, develop tools for playing comedy using the techniques of slapstick, improvisation, partnership, comic timing, and accidents in solo, duo, and group exercises. Through active games and dynamic exercisesÂ you will build short pieces of material using these skills. Physical comedy is funny within context and because of the reaction of the performer, so you will combine technique with context to discover the funny.
