Welcome to the January 2009 edition of the Artmedia physical theatre newsletter, your e-publication with an Australasian focus and a global perspective, now in its eighth year and reaching over 2,500 subscribers.

One of my early clown teachers, Mime River, Michael Lynch, has just died at his home in Nelson, New Zealand, after a battle with a rare form of cancer. River was born in America and was part of the Festival of Fools movement coming out of Amsterdam in the late 70's. He taught a Fools School in Stockholm Sweden in 1977, which I attended, and from which a group of us formed a clown troupe which toured and worked in New Zealand for the next couple of years.

River was a great communicator, the sort of clown who in his younger days could sit down at a bar with a pack of cards, make friends, do some close up magic and be shouted food, alcohol and accomodation in return. He took the name River to remind himself and others that he was always in a process of change. He was also a forward thinker who was interested in the role of clown in society and the history of the art form as well as its spiritual connections. He died at peace, surrounded by his family and prepared for 'a long journey to the most foreign of lands'.

In the Sponsorship this month we welcome the School for Mime Theatre in the U.S. with information on their Two Week Summer Seminar beginning June 28th. Located on the campus of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, the School for Mime Theatre is a place where faculty and students live and work together as a company and where artists can work in a non-competitive environment. Online registration opens February 1, 2009.

In the Playspace section, my Summer Clown reatreat in New Zealand has just wound up after a wonderful week of work with students from Canada, France, Australia and New Zealand, and I'm inspired to look at a longer retreat next year. For those seeking for a workshop in Australia, the best deal on my March Sydney Clown Intensive expires at the end of this month.

In the Features the Clown Conservatory in San Francisco is gearing up for their 2009-10 School Year Auditions. They offer a year long program in the growing international field of Social Circus as well as their program of professional clown training, whose graduates go on to work with top-level circus and theater companies.

We also have news from Total Theatre in Western Australia of a new 3 month intensive physical theatre training course. The course will cover a wide range of theatre and circus skills. The dates are April to June 2009.

And in Sydney Ira Seidenstein will teach a Quantum Clown Workshop. In this two day workshop presented by Legs On The Wall, January 24th to 25th, Ira will introduce the principles of Quantum Theatre: Slapstick to Shakespeare and demonstrate how they apply to clown/acting for theatre and circus.

In Networking we have information on Circus Kumarani in Northland, New Zealand, who require Community Circus Trainers to run circus skills workshops and to motivate people of all ages and abilities. 

In Australia, the Brisbane Fringe Festival, this year called "Under The Radar" will be including street theatre in the programme for the first time. All forms of street theatre and street performance are encouraged to apply. The festival runs September 18th to October 3rd. Also in Brisbane, Vulcana Women's Circus is offering Circus Skills workshops. Classes start the week of February 16th.

Dzieci in New York are holding their annual 24-hour immersion workshop, Maraton, January 24th - 25th. Partial participation may be arranged. O-T-O Dance are offering Aerial Dance Classes in Tucson, Arizona. Classes start January 20th and are open to all levels. They also offer a special drop in rate.

The call has gone out for help writing Rigging Pamphlets. Steven Santos from Simply Circus is heading up a project to write out basic performer rigging pamphlets. The project is well on its way, but they need a few more writers. So if you'd like to help out, contact Steven.

The Copenhagen International Theatre Festival is calling for proposals from artistic companies for the 2nd edition of Metropolis, a biennale for art in the public space, including performance, which challenges our notion of space, place and the city. This event that will take place in August this year in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the p roposal deadline is February 1st.

In the UK, Jon Davison is offering Clown Workshops as part of the International Clown Research Project. Held at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London it starts February 16th. Q3 Academy requires a Dancer in Residence for 20 days. Located in West Midlands, they are looking for someone with lots of ideas for dance development that will work toward establishing Dance as part of their curriculum. Application closes January 26th.

SPILL Festival of Performance invites applications from emerging performance artists and companies for their April showcase. This London-based festival of live art and experimental theatre organised by Pacitti Company promises to be a golden opportunity for national and international exposure.

We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the physical theatre community, so send us information for inclusion in this newsletter, and please also forward this to someone else who may be interested.

The School for Mime Theatre at Kenyon College
Gambier, Ohio, U.S.A.
2009 Two-Week Summer Seminar
June 28 – July 12

School for Mime Theatre at Kenyon College

Rick Wamer, Co-Artistic Director of the School for Mime Theatre at Kenyon College has announced dates for the upcoming 2009 Two-Week Summer Seminar, to be held at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, U.S.A., June 28 – July 12. The two-week seminar is $1,200.00 USD and includes housing and tuition. Transportation and food is the responsibility of the participant. Kitchen facilities are available.

The first week is available as a stand-alone week at the rate of $750.00 USD.

The School for Mime Theatre evolved from the vision of a fertile laboratory for mimes to work on the development of their performance skills along with writing and construction methods that would advance the art form as envisioned some 30 years ago by Gregg Goldston, founder of The Goldston School for Mimes. The School for Mime Theatre of today, continues this mission, evolving as a center where artists can work in a non-competitive environment and faculty, with students, live and work together as a company, creating and furthering the development of the art form. The School for Mime Theatre has become one of the most vital centers for Mime in the Americas.

Classes are taught in the techniques of Marcel Marceau, Etienne Decroux and the unique skills evolved throughout years of teaching, creating and performing by the staff.

Inspired by a desire to elevate the art of Mime to encompass the full accoutrements of the theatrical stage, and to especially foster the development and strengthening of the skills necessary to create solo and ensemble Mime Theatre, the School for Mime Theatre’s faculty invite you to attend the 29th year of Mime Theatre on the campus of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, U.S.A.

The faculty, with over 75 years combined experience writing, performing and directing within the art of Mime holds a unique perspective on the art and its practice. Steeped in the techniques of Marcel Marceau, Stefan Niedzialkowski, Etienne Decroux, Gregg Goldston and C. Nicholas Johnson, they have been internationally recognized innovators of Mime in their own right.

Faculty for The Seminar of 2009 consists of C. Nicholas Johnson and Rick Wamer (Co-artistic Directors), Lorie Heald and Stephen Chipps.

Playspace:  Clown Training with Alan Clay

horizontal rule

Sydney Clown Intensive

Sunday 22nd to Thursday 26th March 2009, (5 days) 10am to 4pm each day

" We tend to think of clown as the painted faced character which has come down to us from the circus tradition of the last two hundred years. However clown is possibly the oldest art form, occurring in every society throughout the ages, and it is an art form which has been undergoing a renaissance and a rejuvenation over the past few years. Modern clown is less character based and more interactive than traditional clown, it is less about hiding behind make-up and more about revealing our true selves, and less about routine based entertainment and more about spontaneous artistic expression. We need training and tools to facilitate these new skills in our work, and this workshop aims to give participants a way of working which supports this process." Alan Clay

Clown is empathic, 'feeling with' the audience, and it is also playful, open to the impulses in each moment, and this workshop will train and develop these skills through improvisation exercises. Each day will start with a yoga warm up and participants will work physically to free themselves from patterns and to connect with their emotions. Street theatre has informed and assisted the development of modern clown, and participants will take simple exercises out into the street environment to assist in the development of interactive audience skills.

The workshop is aimed at those with a professional interest in clown. It is suitable both for beginners and for those with experience, and it functions best with this mix in the class. There will be a minimum of four and maximum of eight on the workshop. $400 Price-buster (by Jan 31) $500 Earlybird (by Feb 28) $600 Full. (All fees and deposits are non-refundable) email: clown@artmedia.com.au to hold a place or make enquiries about this workshop.

Feature: Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide

horizontal rule

Angels can Fly includes a mix of fiction which follows the adventures of ten clown characters, some personal clown anecdotes from clowns around the world, a total of 50 practical clown exercises, and some theory on the nature of modern clown. The book is available on order through bookshops and online stores in New Zealand, Australia, America and England. Here are some reviews that have been posted on Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars helpful, inspiring, April 23, 2008 by Fritz "DM-Fritz" (Germany)
I just got the book one day ago. It pulled me through. although i work in the field of clown for quite a while it is a great book to learn, remember and to remind you. thanks a lot for putting a the stuff together. Great job, Daniel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Angels Can Fly!, October 31, 2005 by Michael C. Getlan "caring clown" (New Rochelle, NY)
This is a terrific book, and should be read and used frequently. The stories about the real clowns are inspiring and the exercises are practical and important, especially if you are serious about exploring the clown in you.
"Clown is a fascinating, diverse, complex and exciting art form, which has existed around the planet for thousands of years. Like any art form it has to evolve to stay relevant to the culture nurturing it, and at the same time, and by its very nature, clown teases and turns upside down the cultural patterns and boundaries around us."

You can find the paperback on Amazon by following this link: http://tinyurl.com/9nrwj And check out more information at:  www.alanclay.com where you can still get a free copy of the e-Book.

Feature: Legs On The Wall presents Quantum Clowning Workshop with Ira Seidenstein, 24th - 25th January, NSW

horizontal rule

24 - 25 January 2009, 10am – 4pm
Red Box, Lilyfield

Director, clown, actor, Ira Seidenstein will introduce the principles of Quantum Theatre: Slapstick to Shakespeare and demonstrate how they apply to clown/acting for theatre and circus.

A Quantum Clown workshop is an economical way to reinvigorate ones own clowning practice by using universal principles of Quantum Theatre. It incorporates the breadth of ideas and techniques of contemporary theatre whilst using a practical body-mind-spirit approach to reconnect with our deeper creative natures. With a clear grounding in Suzuki Actor Training Method and anatomically correct physical training based on yoga, acrobatics, and Core Body Mechanics, the Quantum Theatre exercises leave space for an actor to use any of their previous trainings or experience. In an enjoyable, creative and practical way the universal principles defined by QTSS are real, clear, adaptable, and will directly enhance the work of any performer. Numerous professionals have found that the universal principles of Quantum Theatre can create a renewed freedom in ones body and creativity.

He was the Artistic Director for Sweden’s national circus high school and was a former teacher at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Australia. He is a former resident teacher & choreographer for the Bell Shakespeare Company and a mentor to numerous independent artists nationally and internationally. He trained at Dell ‘ Arte School of Physical Theatre and holds an M.A. in Visual & Arts and trained as an Iyengar yoga teacher with the founder of the Australian School of Yoga.
