ODC Theater Institute: Clown Therapy Workshop

ODC Theater Institute: Clown Therapy Workshop
Sunday, February 18, at 11am

Clown Therapy disseminates Olinghouse’s current studio practice methodology, an improvisational portraiture practice that explores the shape-shifting nature of identity and personhood. In sessions, participants begin with stream-of-conscious movement improvisations accompanied by chosen songs and dress-up elements. Clown Therapy brings internal states to the surface and mines them as material, exaggerating and animating a series of fictional personas. Meant as a space for mess making, irreverence, and amusement, this practice invites and celebrates failure and the absurd.

This workshop is free and open to movers of all kinds. RSVP by emailing theater@odc.dance. Walk-ups welcome, first come, first served until capacity is reached.
