More about Clowing:
Through the course you discover more subtle ways of listening and relating to one another. It is refreshing to be allowed to make mistakes and to play with them. It develops mindfulness and resilience and is an antidote to the stress and frustration of increasingly regulated work!
You'll work in a group of about twelve. Starting with warm-up games, vocal and physical exercises and move gradually into improvisations. This helps develop spontaneous play, responding from the heart and being more present in the moment. Breaking with convention, making mistakes and landing oneself in it are all welcomed as ways of creating new insights.
£50 for the day which includes lunch & other refreshments (cheque payments sent directly to David).
