  • 107 Redfern 107 Redfern Street Redfern, NSW, 2016 Australia (map)

Co-presented by Clockfire Creative Lab & The Clown Institute

Plunge into the madness of mockery with the highly visual parade of the fantastic and grotesque. Harness the bouffon and her merry gang of soothsayers in this rigorous workshop which will encourage your imagination to connect with the deeply surreal and strange and in doing so, uncover a unique humanity.

You will be guided through exercises, games and ambitious improvisations that promise to invigorate and encourage you to find the pleasure in ‘play’. Concluding with an ensemble-made bouffon-esque experiment, this hour-long soiree will facilitate the sharing of your findings with your nearest and dearest giving you a firm platform to satirise the ‘madness du jour’.

Suitable for independent artists, performance makers, comedians, actors seeking provocation and growth.
