About the workshop:
Clown workshop, with some theory, a lot of practice and a little bit of history.T his workshop covers contemporary clowning – what is only absurd, and what is also funny and why. It also looks into classic tricks of the trade, exercises in search of comic identity, style and timing. On the longer run we can approach how to compose an act.
Born into a traditional circus family, Joanna Bassi learned violin, juggling, dance, acrobatics, and acting to finally become a clown. She has been involved in the performing arts since childhood, whether on stage, underneath, on the side or behind, she has coached, directed, performed, taught in multiple fields ranging from Music to Comedy and Drama. In Circus, Streets and theatres, she now works with people from beginners to the most experienced focusing on what she can give to improve a show.
