(Adults) Physical Theater Weekend Workshop by The Clown School of Hollywood

Play. Reveal. Connect.
The Art of Physical Theatre

In this high-energy two-day workshop, Mike Funt of The Clown School in Hollywood, CA, will push you to give license to your spontaneous, fearless, and playful self through physical theatre, movement, improvisation and games. In this workshop we will explore the value of play, connection, and vulnerability in performance and everyday life as well as play improv and theatre games designed to encourage individuality, demystify failure, embolden creative risks, and enhance sensitivity.

Students will:
• Work through improvisational exercises that focus on the connection with the audience as well as deep emotional connectivity.
• Perform exercises and games that are carefully constructed to build skills and techniques that are applicable to many differing performance venues and disciplines – and of course, life.
• Receive individual attention and targeted challenges from a world expert in the art form
• Engage in classes that are disciplined, rigorous, and great fun.

Performers and non-performers will learn how to use play to diminish a fear of failure and encourage healthy risk-taking, to use vulnerability to build confidence and innovation, and to use connection to develop equitable and inclusive collaboration.

Let go of your fears. Have some fun. Come and play with us.
