This course is for anyone interested in exploring clowning either professionally or for personal reasons, with Vivian Gladwell and guests.
This 3-week intensive residential course is for anyone interested in exploring clowning either professionally or for personal reasons. Professionally clowning might lead to performance work or as clown facilitators (this course is advised for those interested in the upcoming Clown facilitator course in 2023). The course may also be of interest to anyone wishing to use clowning for more personal reasons such as teacher training (i.e. clowning courses are now recognized as modules for the Bachelor, Masters and International Masters courses at the teacher training centers for Waldorf teachers which means their schools can finance the courses)
This course will take participants from Level 2 to level 5 of the Nose to Nose curriculum. The prerequisite is to have done Clown 1 before applying for this course.
Vivian is the founder and director of Nose to Nose and has given hundreds of workshops around the world. He lives both in the UK and France where he started clowning in 1978. He speaks French and English fluently.
Vivian began teaching in 1988 as part of the Lifeways Festival at Emerson College – UK. He trained as a facilitator with the Bataclown in 1990 and joined their team in 1991 also working as a modern day Court Jester (Clownanalyst).
He created Nose to Nose UK in 1990, Nose to Nose of North America in 2006, Nose to Nose Germanyin 2008, NTN Italy in 2016 and Fool View, the Social Clowning group and has trained facilitators in the UK, the USA, Germany and Italy – view history.
He continues his role as ambassador for the work by researching the applications of clowning in the context of teacher training, medicine, conflict management, ecology and intercultural work in many countries (South Africa, USA, Senegal, Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Italy, Germany, Norway…)
He holds clowning as a social playground for exploring our humanity.
