“The clown doesn’t exist aside from the actor performing him. We are all clowns, we all think we are beautiful, clever and strong, whereas we all have our weaknesses, our ridiculous side, which can make people laugh when we allow it to express itself.” Jacques Lecoq
The search for and exploration of one’s clown is a never-ending journey. As we grow, change and have new experiences so too does our clown, giving us endless potential for fun and laughter. Come join us at the beautiful Aiowira Retreat Centre to rejuvenate yourself through a weekend of hilarity and absurdity.
Lisa Brickell (BA; DipDrama; DipPhysTheatre – Lecoq, Paris) and
Zack McCracken (BA Drama; Dip Creative Writing; DipPhysTheatre – Lecoq, Paris) have taught and performed extensively throughout NZ, Asia and Europe.
