Cultural Approaches to Theatre Clowning

There are many schools of thought when it comes to theatre clown training, but through different schools’ styles and cultures, is there a common goal? How does a performer’s personal history and/or cultural lens manifest in their work? Join us for a dynamic conversation with festival artists about the many ways clowns are born, and how their stories end up on-stage.
