The Brick Theater, Inc. presents
Finding your Clown and Beginning to Write for Clown
taught by Patrick de Valette
Patrick de Valette is a master master of the masters. He studied a lot in the best school,
and took every workshop he could with the most important teachers ever created.
Patrick de Valette says : "There is two kind of things, some
funny some are not funny"
This class will be an exploration of what is funny and what is not
! But we will
never answer this question : why ? In this short workshop we will work towards finding some of the most important features that make up your clown. We will try different approaches to material and discuss and play with how to write the most efficiently...
**If you have material you would like to show, we may find a little time together to work on it in class.
