Shifting Sands Theatre

Clown Workshops

Venue: Edinburgh
Prices: £150

The Clown is not a character. It’s a state of playing, of being. Clown is where you see and realise what is so stupid about yourself. It is so great you want to celebrate and share this with others.

Edinburgh Workshops

CLOWN: PLAY & PHYSICAL COMEDY
19 November 2023, 12 noon – 4pm
2 December 2023, 10.30am – 4pm
The Clown is not a character. It’s a state of playing, of being. Clown is where you see and realise what is so stupid about yourself. It is so great you want to celebrate and share this with others – the audience.

CLOWN: PLAYING WITH TRAGEDY
9 December 2023, 10.30am – 4pm
Tragedy is an opportunity for the Clown to play on a grand scale, to find truthful ways to play with great emotions but not to undermine them. There is irreverence but no parody. In dire circumstances, the clown finds playfulness and beauty in tragedy.

Gerry Flanagan moved to Scotland last year. He is Artistic Director of Shifting Sands Theatre founded to create and tour clown theatre that is both comic and moving. Gerry has been performing, teaching and directing Clown for over 30 years.

Fee for all three workshops: £150 / *Early Bird £120 if paid by 11 November 2023.
