$10/session

For anyone who has gone through any clown training this is a way to continue the practice on a weekly basis and a means to develop your clown, your turn or your show with an audience. All levels are welcome.

Each week after the session join us at Insomnia on Bloor for nachos!

Come to whatever session you can. There is no obligation to come every week and no obligation to get up and try something- just watching is an option. We’ll play for 30 min then jump into trying turns — a trial by fire -seeing how long you can stay on stage and still be engaging to the audience. We will be working toward a showcase soirée in to be produced in the spring with proceeds going back to the performers.

Drop-in whichever Mondays you want -just let us know ahead of time — [email protected] 416-892-4322. All levels welcome. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Clown. Discover your inner idiot — ridiculous and genius! With your pleasure PLAY and ability to FLOP with panache you will engage with a powerful force that connects you on a profound level to the audience, opening a channel between you and them.

“How do you find your clown? By following this saying to the letter: ‘When laughter breaks out, the clown isn’t far away. When laughter dies down, the clown goes away. Where is my clown? He is born in laughter, lives near laughter and dies beside laughter. With this work people have to find a way of being beautiful and surprising… and by beautiful I mean being in the grip of pleasure or freedom." -Philippe Gaulier

Hogtown Clown strives to be affordable and accessible. If you want to attend but can not afford to do so, please email [email protected]
