Melbourne Clowning Troupe


Devising and Performing Solo Clown Routines

Presented by Melbourne Community Clown Troupe and Westside Circus

Interested in trying out some ideas for a solo clown routine? That is what our Winter Course is all about. Each week we will play a few clown games to warm up and revise the rules, then it is your time to devise and show and tell. Weekly devising tasks will be set or you can bring along an idea from home that you are keen to try…

Please note, Liz will be working as your director/ clown master; you need to be willing to let go of an idea if it is not working, take her direction on board and follow the rules of clown (or it is not clowning).

We will work for 5 weeks of Mondays (31 July- 28th August, 6.30- 9pm) at Westside Circus (41 Cramer St, Preston) and then we put on two shows (ticketed events, venue TBA) on Sunday 3rd Sep (Show times: 4pm and 7.30pm, call time 2pm). Please note, we will create a safe performance environment, where the audience will be made aware that these are very new ideas being tested for the first time for an audience.

Please note, you need to be available for ALL of the sessions and performances to enroll. We will be capping numbers at 12 participants and you need to pay the full $200 up front to secure your place.

Course cost: $200
