Emerson College Education Partners, Nose To Nose, run clowning workshops in France, Germany, Italy and North America and Online as well as in the UK here at Emerson College.
'Created in 1990, Nose to Nose brings together our diverse experiences in the fields of theatre, community building, teaching, storytelling, play therapy, counselling, Special Needs and organisational consultancy.
As facilitators, we believe we stay true to the spirit of clowning when we flow with the creative process of each person, when we nurture its emotional expression and the emergence of the imagination and when we facilitate and free actors to find their own clown, unique and grounded in their relationship to the audience.
By focusing on the individual we go straight to the heart of clowning, which is the search for authenticity both in the social or personal dimensions of our lives.' - Vivian Gladwell
