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


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. For more information concerning the School for Mime Theatre’s Summer Seminar and registration requirements, please contact Rick Wamer at ricgeocap@msn.com . Phone: 001- 520-990-7425. Online registration is now open. All registration closes June 27, 2009. Deposit of $500.00 USD is required with registration in order to guarantee placement in the seminar. 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

Retreat 2009 - Wanganui, New Zealand

Sunday August 23 to Thursday August 27 (5 days) 10am to 4pm each day.

Following two summer clown retreats in our centre in Wanganui, NZ, we find that the relaxed atmosphere and secluded environment means that students get more out of the contact hours and can also process and discuss the work outside of the class. As a result we are increasing the number of residential workshops in New Zealand and are introducing a Winter Clown Retreat. Reconnect with the playful, inquisitive, cheeky, clown spirit in a beautiful outdoor setting, overlooking the mouth of the Wanganui river.

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.
The fees include six nights accommodation with kitchen facilities. The Clown Retreat will be held in a secluded studio within reach of breathtaking west coast beaches, bush walks and jet boat or canoe expeditions, but still handy to good coffee and all the facilities.

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.

NZ$600 Price buster (by June 15) NZ$700 Earlybird (by July 31) NZ$800 Full. Including 6 nights accommodation with kitchen facilities. (All fees and deposits are non-refundable) For those coming from overseas, the current New Zealand dollar exchange rate means this is about Aus$480 or US$310.  email: clown@artmedia.com.au to hold a place or make enquiries about this workshop.

Moontan DVD Now Available

Alan Clay's short film, Moontan, a heart warming story about two street clowns who get swept up in an occupation of New Zealand's last Victorian theatre, is now available in a DVD compilation through Amazon.

The film was shot in Wanganui, New Zealand, in October 2006. The 15 minute short film premiered at the 2007 Fringe Film Festival in Wellington, New Zealand, in July 2007 and has also screened at SPAA Fringe in Brisbane, the Australian Director's Conference in Sydney and in the market at Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival in France and also at the Short Film Corner at the Cannes Film Festival.

The DVD includes the short, a thirty minute rough cut of the film plus a twenty minute 'Making of Moontan' documentary, and an extra clown performance (total: 72 min.). Now available for US$14.95 from Create Space.

"Moontan spends much of his time looking at others and observing their physical reactions. His views of performers working a crowd, of theatre workshops and improvised shows are credible and successfully draw the reader into the world of a clown." Wellington Dominion

 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."
