A BRIDGE IN THE NOSE

It is known that in the world of clowns, the famous theatrical “fourth wall” does not exist. That thing, or limit, that divides the world of the stage -and its actors- from the world of the spectators. But what does it mean that there is no fourth wall? Does it mean that clowns and people in the audience are all mixed up? Or that every clown show invariably needs to be "interactive" in the strictest way of the word?

For me, that there is no "fourth wall" implies that there is a bridge. Or as many bridges as there are clowns and public. The bridges that clowns create between themselves and those who look at them are unique works. They can be solid and huge. They can be narrow and flimsy. They can be simple, pompous, comfortable, awkward, quirky, old-fashioned, fantastic. Through them the most diverse materials, proposals and universes can circulate. And it is in the creation, in the support and in transit of those bridges that the clowns exist, are modified and grow.

If the bridge disintegrates completely, the connection between clowns @ and the public breaks down. And either the show dies, or the fourth wall is reinstalled.

On the way of each clown @ to create and to move in that bridge; on the record of how that bridge can be modified if the public, or the environment, ol @ s partenaires is modified; and on how the dialogue that this bridge generates on its two shores, modifies them, is that this Workshop wants to work.

OBJECTIVE:

Deepen and develop the clown technique, placing special emphasis on:

Contact with the public. Fine-tuning listening to it. Expanding the record of action and reaction to what our proposals awaken in those who look at us.

Listening to stage partners.

The development of imagination and play.

The transformation of impulses into constructive actions of scenic play.

The stage projection, availability and presence.

The transit through (and acceptance of) vulnerability, failure and ridicule, as constitutive and foundational parts of clown work.

WORK ELEMENTS:

Comfortable clothes.

Costume, nose and objects of each clown @ (including shoes and coat suitable for going out)

Tickets or transport cards, if necessary.

Workshop language: English.
