Melbourne Clowning Troupe


The only way to truly learn how to clown is to put yourself in front of an audience. This block, work with director Liz Skitch, to devise original clown routines that will be performed as part of a Clown Cabaret at The Wesley Anne (home of the Moulin Beige) over short season in mid June. Content will be devised through directed clown improvisations on the floor at our weekly Monday night sessions. The show will comprise of a combination of solo, duo and group routines (rehearsed improvisations). Both the content of the show and the ticket sales will go towards staging a larger scale season in 2018.

Cost: $200 for full block
