A special version of the the Clown and Dark Clown workshop was recently filmed towards a documentary (so far awaiting a title). This image of film-maker Robert Golden capturing the action is by Robert Piwko Photography. This documentary is being made possible by a small but extremely valuable grant from RADA and the CDD. The film is in post production now - there will be more news as it happens.
Thanks to the amazing participants - one of whom said:
‘We got through so much with no feel of rush and with very little pain…the seeing and being seen reminders throughout kept me more present than I have been in the past.
I felt very safe throughout the two days. I thought you gave a very helpful and reassuring amount of direction, which in turn made a more comfortable environment and therefore better work produced to be learnt from by clown and audience. I found a different kind of stillness within the world of the dark clown.
One thought I had was - Being fake happy is awfully depressing, but being fake sad is wonderfully fun.'
