Apply now for our 2013 – 2014 Intensives!
Clown Conservatory’s newly designed Intensives take the student through a unique and comprehensive training in Clown, Commedia dell’arte, and Bouffon, combined with a healthy mix of Slapstick, Solo & Partner Acrobatics, Mime, Mask Performance and Circus Skills. The focus is on developing professional level performance material for cabaret, theatrical clowning, street theater and circus. It draws inspiration from traditional circus clowning but explores new possibilities, combining the naiveté, curiosity, and open playfulness associated with clowns, with the more provocative, challenging and confrontational work of stand up comedy, street theater and satire. Our Clown workshops also offer equipment and expertise for training in advanced circus arts. Students can take the entire 20 week course of study – which includes access to our Circus Arts Unlimited Classes – or apply to any of the individual Intensives to broaden their skills and develop new work in a creative and challenging environment. Get serious about your funny. Join us at Clown Conservatory at Circus Center San Francisco.
