Sponsor - Clown Conservatory at Circus Center, San Francisco

"A clown doesn't know how to - or cannot - pretend, nor can he
be artificial. In the circus, laughter cannot be faked any more
than a somersault." Jerome Medrano

The Clown Conservatory at Circus Center, San Francisco, is the
only institution in the United States offering comprehensive training
in professional circus clowning. It began in 2000 with a grant from
the National Endowment for the Arts. To date, 34 clowns have
graduated from the program, many of whom are working
professionally in circuses, theaters and puppet troupes such as
Cirque Eloize, New Pickle Circus, Stomp, Lunitique Fantastique
and the S.F. Shakespeare Festival.

Training at the Clown Conservatory has two major threads -
skilled circus clowning and clowning in community.

1) Skilled circus clowning involves developing circus, dance,
musical and theatrical skills to a level that they can be used as
part of a 'clown language' while learning the structures that can
contain that language. Clown history has yielded many classic
routines that become cutting edge when they are inhabited by
skilled clowns who have developed unique 'languages'. First year
students begin by exploring these classic structures, bringing them
to life with authentic, idiosyncratic characters. They then learn to
create original material (clown playwriting) and take their acts on
the road.

2) Clowning in Community is an ongoing study of how clowns
can make deep contributions to their communities. In the first
quarter, each student researches a clown or clown tradition from
another part of the world, expanding our knowledge of how
clowns relate within other cultures. In the second quarter, students
partner with local community groups (hospitals, homeless shelters,
recycling centers, etc.) to research new ways that clowns and
clown skills can be used to enrich communities.

The first year program includes 14 hours of classes a week: Core
Clowning, Body Awareness (Alexander Technique), Acrobatics,
Dance, and Circus Skills. In addition, students attend 9 weekend
workshops (once a month September - May) taught by award-
winning artists such as choreographer/circus director Tandy Beal,
actor/clown Joan Mankin, puppeteer Liebe Wetzel, and Ronlin
Foreman, head teacher of Dell'Arte International. First year
students spend between 10 and 20 hrs per week outside of class
rehearsing, training, reading and working on research projects.

The school year is divided into three quarters: September 7 -
December 17, 2004 (15 weeks), January 3, 2005 - March 25,
2005 (12 weeks), and March 28 - June 19, 2005 (12 + weeks).
The students offer in-house performances open to the public
approximately every 5 weeks. In May and June, the class
becomes a touring clown troupe, performing in a number of
community venues (schools, senior centers, medical facilities,
etc.) as well as in a Showcase at Circus Center.

Tuition for the Clown Conservatory Class of 2005 is $7,600. We
have an active work-for-tuition program that offers a maximum of
$3500 per student in 'sweat equity'. Tuition for our second-year
program is $3000 and our workshops and classes are priced

Auditions for the Clown Conservatory's 2004/2005 school year
begin in April, 2004. Letters of interest should arrive at Circus
Center by April 1, 2004 - please include a picture, résumé and
3 letters of reference. These can be sent to:

Peggy Ford, Clown Conservatory, 755 Frederick Street, San
Francisco, CA 94117, USA. These can also be emailed directly
to the Clown Conservatory at peggy@circuscenter.org . For more

Playspace News -

Alan Clay, has been touring to America and Canada during 2003,
teaching clown masterclasses, and doing readings from his novel
'Believers in Love'. Now back in Sydney, Alan is offering a three
day clown training opportunity in May, and a longer 5 week
clown school in July.

3-day Clown Masterclass, Sydney, May 10 to 12. Mon to Wed,
10am to 4pm.

This workshop takes a physical and emotional approach to clown,
placing an emphasis on rediscovering the sense of play, the
curiosity to explore and the innocence to see things in new ways.
Each day starts with a yoga warm up, followed by exercises to
develop physical and emotional expression, and improvisational
exercises to develop comic timing and audience rapport.
$320 ( earlybird, before March 26 ) Aus$400 ( full ). Enrolments:

5-week Clown School, Sydney, July 6 to Aug 5, Tue and Thurs
each week, 10am to 4pm.

This course provides the opportunity to work intensively with
clown, two days a week, for five weeks, giving lots of time for
individual activities while providing a regular intensive training
opportunity. Clown is an art form which has existed for
thousands of years, and undergone a revolution in recent
times, as it made the leap back from circus into theatre, giving
birth to 'new clown' and physical theatre. At Playspace we take
a broad view of clown, which allows students room to develop
their own unique style. $860 ( earlybird, before May 6 )
Aus$1,020 ( full ) or $500 deposit and two payments of $350

"This year I am devoting to the completion of my new clown book,
'Angels can Fly, they take themselves lightly' Alan explains,
"which includes 50 practical clown exercises, plus some theory
on the art form, a fictional series following the experiences of ten
clown characters, and some memoir from my personal experience."

"From early next year, I will be on the road with my new book, so
if you live in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, England, or in
northern Europe and you want to organise a clown workshop for
me as part of that tour, please e-mail your suggestions to :

Feature - Circus Oz - Sydney, Adelaide Festival, & Touring News

Circus Oz, Australia's flagship circus theatre company, perform
their Big Top Show at Moore Park in Sydney this week, Wed 18th
to Sat 21st Feb at 7.30pm, and Sat 21, Sun 22nd Feb at 1.30pm
Bookings, Ticketmaster7, www.ticketmaster7.com  or Box Office
opens 1 hour prior to show times, for door sales.

Director, Mike Finch reports: "After Sydney we go to the Adelaide
Festival, and while the tent gets set up in Adelaide we are doing
3 shows of a new version of the show called The Blue Show,
on the 27th, 28th and 29th of Feb at the Universal Playground.
The Blue Show is an intimate cabaret style piece based on the
physical skills from the current show but totally re-worked in
terms of music, costume and context.

"The Blue show is an experiment for Circus Oz. It is a hybrid,
re-plugged and mutated working of the physical skills of the
ensemble. We have thrown out many of the traditions of our Big
Top Show and opened up to smaller, bent, refocused images.
A voice, a chair, a pole. The band wander through instead of
being enthroned at the back of the stage.

"We started with a cube truss, a black stage, 12 diverse bodies,
some blue velvet chairs and some rope. We chose songs, some
we wrote, some we borrowed. We put some time-worn routines
and some new improvisation together. By framing our most
dangerous stunts with poignant music and our whimsical
moments with ballistics we think we have discovered a whole
new palette of imagery, mood and colour.

"Then we run the Big Big Top Show in Rundle Park, in our tent in
Adelaide from the 4th till the 14th of March, and then jump off
into a regional theatre tour of South Australia, to Renmark, Mount
Gambier and Whyalla, followed by Port Lincoln, Port Pirie and
then up to Alice Springs and Darwin, finishing on the 18th of April.

"From there a well deserved holiday and back to our secret circus
laboratory deep in the heart of Port Melbourne, to prepare for our
2004 June/July Melbourne season in the tent. After Melbourne
our programming is looking exciting, with interest from overseas
promoters in North and Central America, Europe and Asia." See
you at the show! Mike Finch, Director, Circus Oz. Find more

"The world's premier drama/theatre-in-education gathering,
the IDEA Congress, will be held in Ottawa between July 2
and 8, and Larry O'Farrell, President of IDEA tells us: 'I have
had the pleasure of attending all 4 previous IDEA congresses,
beginning with the founding one in Porto, Portugal in 1992.
3 years later our world community met in Brisbane, Australia
and I was deeply impressed with the sheer size of this event
(more than 1200 delegates) and with the wonderful facilities
that were put at our disposal. Then in 1998, a congress was
held on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kisumu, Kenya. A unique
element of this gathering was the rich cultural exchange that
took place. The drumming and harmonic voices of the Kenyan
music will stay with me always. Most recently, in 2001,
delegates gathered among the enchanted fjords of Norway.
These congresses examined the role that drama/theatre can
play in establishing identity and in addressing the artistic and
educational needs of young people in all parts of the world. In
July of 2004, delegates will continue this work in Ottawa,
Canada." Larry O'Farrell, President of IDEA. Find a link to the

We are all born with the gift to imagine. And everybody has a
clown inside, and each of these clowns is different. It is only
discovered through games and imaginative exercises, and the
fantastic thing is to express it. This is not only a course for
actors, for clown is valid in any function: to help to be, or to
learn to play again, to confront the own fears... We only must
want to learn it. Teaching staff; Toti Toronell and Rafael
Sanchez, of the Company Cop de Clown. The school was
founded by Theater To the Trot where they give theater

There are no age limits. Participants play games and exercises
of improvisation, and learn the sensibility, and theory of the
comedian. Through the game, the physical activity, sociological
demonstrations and improvisations, every student will find its
complicity, innocence and logic comic. The workshop will
create a playful atmosphere and a trust in the group process.

to exit from the daily routine." Viviana Vagnetti, Bologna, Italy.
