SUMMER CLOWN SCHOOL 

Two week Summer Clown School led by Denni Dennis 2nd of August - 13th of August 2021, Copenhagen, Denmark.


This Summer Clown School will be a guided journey to discover your unique, personal and intuitive clown and bring it to life.

Learn how to build up and maintain contact with the audience and how to use the system of the power of three seconds. Denni Dennis will combine his background of the European style of Jacques Lecoq, the Russian character clown and the Pochinko method, with his personal experience working in clown and as a clown teacher.

Throughout this 2 week Summer Clown School he will let the student explore the clown’s world – what makes us laugh and why?

The emphasis will be on having fun and searching for the beauty and poetry of each clown.

The Summer Clown School will allow the student to take space and use the opportunity to explore plastic training, status play, improvisation, parody, and personal creativity, working both individually and within groups.
