This course continues our research on the clown as social activist.
An experiential workshop, giving participants the chance to alternate between action and reflection. All the exercises are designed so that no previous experience of either clowning or peacemaking is necessary.
By embracing our fears around vulnerability, loss of control and not knowing, the clown invites us to remain fully engaged, curious and interested even in times of great stress without losing the connectedness to our own inner voice and emotions.
This practice counteracts our tendency in conflict to become smaller versions of ourselves and to get stuck in one-sidedness. Dealing successfully with conflict is about the courage and integrity to show our humanity.
This course continues our research on the clown as social activist and provides an important grounding for looking at the social role of the Court Jester and the Fool in our society
