In this two-hour workshop we will face a path to discover what makes you ridiculous, ugly and foolish. The goal of the workshop is to offer participants a perspective on how silliness helps create a safe environment and help create a circus or theater performance.
The workshop is intended for young people and adults (13+) interested in physical theater, regardless of previous experience.
The leader of the workshop is Italian circus and theater artist Davide Perissutti.
