THE RED NOSE (30h)
Red Nose, personal ridiculousness, theatre clown, improvisation, the beauty of failure.
Professionals, students and advanced amateurs in the wide field of performing arts. This beginner’s course is for all who are interested in exploring their own personal ridiculousness with the help of the RED NOSE.
No previous clowning experience is necessary.
The five-day clown course introduces the basics of theater clowning; we do physical theater exercises, play, explore our own and others' ridiculousness in a safe atmosphere and give birth to clowns.
The aim of the course is e.g. tolerating failure, appreciating mistakes, becoming aware of your own ridiculousness, taking yourself less seriously…and above all, having fun!
Soile Mäkelä (TeM) is a founding member of Teatteri Metamorfoosi and a theater teacher who graduated from University of the Arts Helsinki, Theatre Academy in 2008. She approaches theater-making from a physical point of view, in the spirit of the French Lecoq pedagogy.
Soile's most important teachers and inspirations on his own clowning journey have been Giovanni Fusetti, Mario Gonzalez, Pierre Byland and Philippe Gaulier, and of course all of Soile's own numerous clown course students (see the portraits), with whom he has been able to unravel the great mystery of clownery.
