Commedia School.



The clown brings everyone in the public down to the common state of a one year-old.

As the students encounter the phenomena of the clown, they develop a freedom of play while discovering their stock comic character, their unique way of making people laugh. Working with the solitude of the clown gives them a sense of being centered in themselves on stage and in touch with the immediate circumstances.  They develop the ability to play with the surprises that invariably occur in performance.  Working with the naiveté of the clown gives each student experience with a basic human condition and their own vulnerability. They discover that their personal vulnerability is what makes them interesting on stage no matter what style they are performing in.  During this study, the students have several opportunities to play their clown numbers and shows with diverse audiences in Denmark and abroad.

[quote author=”Charles Chaplin “]I remain just one thing, and one thing only – and that’s a clown.  It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.  [/quote]
