Clown School

“Jouez et Rejouez

Clown School builds on the fundamentals of clown work as taught by Richard Pochinko inspired by his mask and character creation. Classes include exercises that will focus on increasing play, spontaneity and complicity. In doing so, students will also have the additional opportunity to practice Turns and develop their raw performance power. Clowning is taught as a fundamental and essential tool for all kinds of performative expression.

Britt Small studied at LaMama’s Director’s Intensive in Italy and has trained in various physical theatre forms including Pochinko Clown with Michael Kennard, Viewpoints with Tina Landau, Anthropological Theater with Włodzimierz Staniewski, Action Theatre and Authentic Movement. She completed her MFA in Directing at the University of Victoria and has directed local and touring shows across Canada for the past 20 years. She is the artistic producer of company Atomic Vaudeville and an independent rapper. Britt also works as a dramaturge and book editor and has taught acting, play building, movement, clown and improvisation for various organizations including the University of Victoria, University of Lethbridge, Raino Dance and the Canadian College of Performing Arts.
